In this class, we will be making a journal entirely from one wall calendar.
This class is a sewn journal class but I will include some information if you do not have a sewing machine. This journal is best constructed with the sewing machine.
Do you love the look of sewn pages but don't like the stitching that shows through on the back side of your pages? In this class, I will be teaching a unique construction method that will allow you to stitch as heavy as you like without affecting the back corresponding page.
There will also be a couple of options for binding this journal. My favorite is the machine sewn binding and I will also show a hand sewn binding with a couple of variations.
A quick and easy journal that is great for not only recycling a wall calendar but perfect for all types of papers, images and scraps that we all save and hate to throw out.
