Leather Guest Book A Classic Keepsake
Open the book up flat. You will need one piece of old leather that is as wide and tall as the whole outside edges of the book. Be sure to add one about one two tow inches to this size.
Click here features several pockets inside and out, and it comes with a zippered pouch for whatever you need to secure. You can choose from a variety of colors or patterns, and you might find that you want more than one, because these look great enough to carry on their own. Each of the Classic Transfer Bags comes with a detachable shoulder strap, so you can easily use it as a purse on its own. But it will really shine when you use it for the lovely and possibly expensive handbags you already have. Put your possessions inside the transfer bag and then move it from one purse to another every day if you like.
Lay each of the larger piece of old leather good side down on your table. Now, lay the two small piece of lather on top, bad side down. Line the outer edges up.
Once I had all 3 pieces cut, I stitchedthem all together with my needle and lilac thread, then sewed in a purple bead, 4 black "cat's eye" type beats, and then 10 very small black beads. Next I stitched the flower to a piece of floral wire and then wrapped the wire around the headband to secure it in place. This one is simple and small and will probably be worn the most by my daughter.
Get a small notebook or journal. If later you want to get a nice leather book, fine, but don't start this exercise with the excuse that you don't have the supplies. Use a scrap of paper you found on the ground if you have to, but starting today, you are going to track something about every day, for one week.
Your last page should provide directions to another place for more information. Either make a CD-Rom with more pictures on it and note it or add info to your website and list the link.
