Handmade coptic stitch journal with lined paper - Blue Kites

My newest journal has Japanese Washi paper for its covers and is sewn together with waxed Irish linen thread, using the coptic stitch. Handmade in the storybeader's workshop.

The wedding planner
Wished she was hanging the kites
For her wedding day.

Dimensions: 4.5" x 6.75"

There are a total of 80 sheets of 24 lb. paper, which I lined with single spacing. Perfect for a small journal. The first signature is wrapped with decorative blue starred paper.

See more about "Blue Kites" at 1000Markets or Etsy.

I like the kites. Not only does it seem to be old worldy (is that a word?), it reminds me of trips to the beach and the giant kites along the beach road.

This paper is so lovely! Your journals are unique!
Also, checked out your booth in the post above. The sneakers are a quirky touch ;-)
