About This Class


In this class you are going to learn how to make quick jotter journals from materials that you have lying around in the house, maybe you'll recycle your old paper bags in this way and re-use discarted prints, drawings or paitings for covers!

This class is suitable for anyone who can safely use sharp tools like needles, awls and knives, including not too young children.

You are going to finish at least two notebooks on your own, one using a 3-hole and one using a 5-hole pamphlet stitch.

Just get started, and you'll soon be as adicted to jotters as I am, with piles of them lying around everywhere.
