As it turned out My Trip journal cover was quick to make.
The little stitcheries around it represents postage stamps from different places I visit. But, I think they could also represent snapshots of places I've been! It's up to you to decide.
Anyway, they were blanket stitch appliqued onto the cover.
I made a twisted cord to hold it closed because my journals are usually filled with 'stuff' that can make them quite thick. I added the handles to make carrying it around easier.
Now the journal cover is finished I just have to sort out my pens, pencils, glue, scissors ...and whatever else I want to take!
Until next time
