I've been making several of these books the past few months. Some refer to these as Travelers Notebooks, some call them Fauxdori Journals (loosely based on the Midori Journals). I was taken wholeheartedly by Donna Downey's "Inspiration Journals" and had to create my own. These are not difficult to make and house two, three or sometimes four signatures. I've used different papers for the signatures on all the books I've created so that I can compare
I can hardly wait to start filling the signatures. I have lots of ideas! These books are made of fabric covers, different patterns for the outside and inside covers. I used a fusible web material sandwiched in between. I also sewed around the perimeter of the book. Added an elastic and button closure. Signatures sewn to the covers with ribbon and fabric.
I also used eyelets to secure the closures and signatures. These are great structures. I enjoy the frayed edges, threads, and organic feel of the books. Give it a try and let me know if you have any questions. I'm here to assist!
