For a while I was looking for A6 format sketchbook in my local stores, but couldn't find one. I never imagined that I could make my own from materials that I already have at home. I'm glad that I noticed this class on Irina Trzaskos Instagram.
I made this A6 format book from 5 sheets of A3 watercolor paper, stitched it up with a basic needle and a polyester thread.
Real time stitching lesson was really helpful and easy to understand in order to follow along.
The only difference that I made, I sew everything together and then glued on a scrap paper over the first and last page. I just liked to have a cover on the spine as well.
Thanks for this amazing class. I'll definitely make many more handmade journals with this method. :)
