These sweet little notebooks are, once again, a result of using up leftovers.  Slightly dented/creased signatures of paper teamed with scrapbook paper, random cardboard, and offcuts of bookcloth for the covers.  Voila, two composition style notebooks.  Available in my Etsy shop for a bargain price, click here to view the listing.

Every so often I’m seized by the urge to use up stuff that’s been lurking in my studio.  I go through phases of this because it usually takes a lot more effort to come up with projects for random bits and pieces than it does to work on regular stuff.  This little project was hit upon when I realised I had various decent-sized bits of leather kicking about, and also some spare cahier-style notebooks.  It was, for a change, actually a fairly quick thing to make – which means I’ll be making a couple more of these very soon once I’ve finished sifting through my leather stash.  The cover of this one is a gorgeous calfskin, and of course it’s refillable: the notebooks inside are from Hema but refills from Moleskine or Muji should fit just fine.

Available now in my Etsy shop.

These two have already been sold but that’s no excuse not to show them off.  They were made using a mixture of coptic and long stitch (sometimes known as French link) binding.

I do have a habit of hoarding paper bags.  Mostly I use them for taking out my recycling (unimaginative, but practical) but occasionally they’re just too pretty to throw away.  I’ve made books from paper bags before but haven’t done any for ages, so I thought it was about time I reduced my stash a little.  These are now available in my Etsy shop.

Way back in February a friend alerted me to the Map Return Scheme being run by the Ordnance Survey people.  Of course I immediately emailed them to ask for a box of old maps but heard nothing so assumed I’d been unsuccessful, as they were offering them on a first come, first served basis.

Then in April an enormous box was delivered to my house.

Over a hundred maps, it was a very exciting day for me.  Of course I had to tweet them and say thank you 🙂

I didn’t tell them that my dog lost the will to live while I was busy sorting through all the maps…

I’ve now made a start on recycling the maps and turning them into books.  The first few are in my Etsy shop now.
