Travel Journal

Thanks to this I have been making travel journals. I finished this one using scraps and things  just lying around. Lots of thread! All sewn by machine except for the buttons and signatures. Some pages are different papers sewn together to make the correct size of a page. Some pages are photographs printed page size (8 1/2 x 11) and folded. All the pages have things sewn on them including pockets, tags, and areas to write.

This journal is ready to have photos, ephemera, and words stuffed in it recording journeys and places. Visit the blog of Mary Ann Moss. She goes places and takes a travel journal with her.
