I've been playing with making my own little hand bound books. Nothing fancy or professional--I don't have the time, materials or skills--just little hand bound notebooks or journals, made largely out of recycled materials.
Here are a few:
These two are made from a recycled, felted sweater with liners of old sheets I salvaged from the cleaning rags. I added vintage buttons, crochet and other bits and pieces I found around the house as details.
These two are made from old coffee bags. The handles are from Starbucks brown paper bags and the clasps are buttons on one side and shell on the other. The interior paper is recycled from old calendars, graph paper, my kid's homework, paper bags and other bits and pieces from around the house.
Now all I need to figure out is what I want to do with them.
