Make Your Own Handmade Book



Ready to make your own handmade book? These are the perfect size for jotting down notes or making a compact scrapbook. All you need are a few supplies, including a pretty patterned fabric. I like using thick canvas fabrics (iKea has some good ones!) for a sturdy, finished look. Enjoy!

  1. These are lovely! And the tutorial is very helpful – I’d love to try it sometime. The idea of getting these fabrics at IKEA is also a good one; I never thought about buying my fabrics there before but they indeed do have some pretty patterns!

    I love this so much! I’m totally going to try it out once I finish the crochet project I’m on right now.

    Would it be okay if I sold the finished products I made like at a local craft fair or on etsy as long as credit is given to you from where I learned how to make these? If the answer is no than I won’t and I’ll just make them as gifts to close friends and family. =)
