Patchwork Journals by April, by small means

    I think everyone I know would like one of these.

    This is a cute idea. These would make nice gifts for teachers or sunday school teachers.

    Cute idea! I may have to make some for Christmas gifts for all my nieces.

  7. Tracey says:

    Love this idea, I’m trying to come up with an idea to hold a plain note pad from work – and i think this might help me get there!

  8. Beth says:

    I have been doing almost the same thing for birthday gifts with a zippered bag to put them in with some writing utensils. You can crank it out fast and it’s homemade! My kids love when I wip some up for play around the house or a special one for a trip!

    Wonderful! What perfect little gifts!! 😀

    I really like this idea! I like the idea of using personalized journals and not just carrying around the same one as everyone else.

  13. Beth says:

    I’m looking for gifts to make for my son’s teachers and it’s a little difficult because one of them is male — but this would be perfect!

    Good idea! Lovely and not difficult!

    Is this the tutorial?
    “April cut cardstock to size, sewed fabric to the cardstock and then sewed pages in..”
    She used zig-zag stiches(?) also around the borders(?) using unravelling fabric(?). How did she sewed in the journal? It seems she might have made side “pockets” to enter the journal cover in.

  16. Beate Teale says:

    Love those journals. a beautiful gift idea, thanks

  17. Kim says:

    I’m about to run out of scraps with all these great ideas! Hope I’ll get to make some of these.
