2 Pieces of contrasting felt, plus some small pieces for embellishment.
Measuring tape or ruler
Paper (folded A4 is fine)
To make the cover, Andie cut one 23cm x 15cm (9in x 6in) and in the contrasting colour, two felt pieces 14cm x 11cm (approx 5 and a half x 4in)
For the decorative front pocket , Andie cut a piece of felt 9cm x 10cm (approx 3 and a half x 4in), cut decorative felt petals and found a sparkly button. Sew button as the anchor for the petals, fold the largest price of felt in half (this will be the cover for the journal) and sew the pocket onto the cover. We used white embroidery thread for the sewing part of the project.
When the front cover is complete, sew the inner panels to the inside of the journal covers.
I'm not sure what secrets or ideas will be written in this homemade book, but regardless, an eleven year old spent a delightful afternoon planning and crafting!
