How to make a Handmade Journal with the Stitches Hidden in the Spine

It took a little trial and error to figure out how to make a cover and assemble last month’s journal which was themed Taking Flight. I wanted a cover that looked like a book cover with no stitches showing on the outside, and pages that weren’t all squashed together. The journal finally came together better than I expected and I made a video tutorial showing you exactly how I did it!

How to make a Handmade Journal with the Stitches Hidden in the Spine

This journal was made using pages from my printable journal kit – Taking Flight – which can be found here in my online store. You can find more details about my daily pages here on my blog and you can see photos here in my photo gallery. You can find a list of the resources that I used to make this journal at the end of this post. I hope you enjoy the tutorial and if you make your own journal, I’d love to see photos!

  1. Linda I absolutely love your handmade journal and thank you for the tutorial on making it. It’s very easy to follow.
    I have lacked motivation and been away from sewing for several months and this has inspired me to get started again.
