Sunday Fun

 This is what I made in a journal class that I took today with my sister. It is made from a file folder. All the edges and binding are sewn. There are pocket pages and journal pages.

 I liked creating all the different pockets and pages. It was interesting how each piece was put together and sewn.

 Not only was there the pocket pages but we also sewed-in ledger paper to be used for pictures and/or journal.
 The back of the journal has an added sewn in piece.

The binding is sewn in to cover the back folds of the file folder. There are some embellishments but I would like to add more. There were some tricky parts but it is something I would like to try again. I think I would want to put more journal pages in.

This was a fun class and I love to spend time with my sister. My top 5 thankful things this week are:

1. Fun classes and learning new paper techniques
2. Spending time with my sister
3. Knowing that I can keep trying to improve and I will
4. Laughter
5. One day at a time

You did this in one day? Wow, that is amazing. It looks beautiful. I would be intimidated by the sewing part.
