After searching literally hours for a pretty handmade journal cover, I discover the perfect one! I went to order it, but the difference between the dollar and whatever country it was in, it ended up costing too much. Still I thought I would order it. Then suddenly I said to myself, "What the ??? is your problem, Julie"!!! I have so much scrap fabric!!!! I had to convince myself I could do it! I jumped up, started measuring my journal, calculating, and picking out fabrics to coordinate. This floral pink, white and black is flocked, and it was a blouse, that had pin tucking on front. I decided my journal needed some interesting architectural details, so the pintucking would be on front. The spine is a natural muslin, and the black jean material is a pocket.
