leather cover pamphlet book

It was my Mums birthday recently and I decided to put my new book binding skills to good use and make her a little note book. I've got so much scrap leather from the loft clear out so decided to use that for the cover.

I tried to sew this little flower on using the machine but the tension was all over the place so I just used the needle to punch holes in it and then hand stitched it on

I used the basic pamphlet stitch with three holes to bind it together

Ta-da....the finished book with hand made paper - love the feel of that!
