|Journal with Handwoven Cover|
The two seemed to be a perfect fit - the cloth was just long enough to cover the book, with a little bit extra, and the text block needed to be covered. Voila!
Putting flaps on my journals is not one thing I enjoy doing mainly because it usually involves a gluey mess. This time, however, it involved less mess, thankfully. Also, the fabric handled better than I thought it was going too. One of my concerns with my handwoven fabric was its thickness. Compared to the store-bought fabric I normally use, my handwoven fabric is thicker in terms of how it feels. Turns out it wasn't as much of a problem as I thought it would be. Despite the thickness, it drapes smoothly, and was less hassle than using brocades.
A fun experiment which just might turn out to be utilized more often.
