About This Class

In this easy class I will demonstrate how I make my journals with:

  • Elastic band closures TWO ways, vertical and horizontal.
  • Inside cover pocket and expandable pocket.
  • Perforated pages at the end of the journal, so you can tear off a page if you want to.
  • New chain stitching for the spine.

I hope you can get excited over making this easy journal and can learn something new every day!
