Making a leather journal

leatherjournal_collageI had a small stash of leather just waiting for a project when I saw this tutorial on Kirstie’s Handmade Britain.  I’ve made several as presents and I love the handmade look of them.  The video and written method are a bit skimpy on details, for example, the lining paper instructions are confusing  (I didn’t line any of mine).  I was also a little daunted at having to draw lines 4mm apart accurately.  However, a little interweb research came up with a site to print your own configurable graph paper – this is for a sheet with lines spaced at 4mm.   No fiddly measuring!!
