Journal Jackets- Craft ideas Summer 2014

 inside you will see the zippered pencil pocket

This Journal Jacket project was alot of fun. I dabbled in leather work on the masculine jacket..the buttons and handle are made from leather scraps found in the scraps bin @ Tandy Leather. For full instructions to create your own journal jacket go pick up your copy of the Summer 2014 issue of Craft ideas magazine and turn to page 27.

happy sewing!
