hand made book covers.

Recently I've been deleting a few of my really early blog posts but I thought I'd give a few of them a bit of a revamp to show all of my new followers! This blog was originally more geared towards d.i.y projects and things so expect to see more bits and bobs that I've made soon... I love nicely covered books so here's some that I've made as presents. I'm also trying to inspire myself into getting crafty again this year as I haven't been so motivated while living in halls.

travel log: I made this for my friend Claire when she left to go travelling of six months. I love using free-stitch on a sewing machine, I think the outcome is so pretty! Inside I stuck a little map for her to record where she's been as well as an address book at the back.

college log book: This was my log book when I was doing my art foundation last year (feels like so long ago!!) The needle on the front is made out of an old map :)

home made embroidered diary gift

diary: I made this one for my friend Jessica for christmas last year, she took this picture and you can find her blog here.

What do you think? Did you make any christmas presents this year? I really need to get back into sewing, hopefully I'll be able to lug my sewing machine up to halls at some point soon!



  1. These are great! xxx

  2. This is such a clever idea! And they look beautiful. Sadly, I haven't made anything in ages! :/

  3. Wow! I love these! They look so amazing :D very talented! xx
