I like it, it’s how I put together my passport wallet/travel journal. I love travel journals and being able to add more pages.

Falling water and a Mini, I love them both. Thanks for the share and especially for including the notebooks that they fit.

Here is the file I used for the Mini notebook cover. I find using High Quality Score gives a good boarder for doing 2 color dyeing.

Made that one for my wife who has always been a big FLW buff. We toured Fallingwater and a few of his other houses this past summer.

FYI - that one was cut from Houston Acrylics laserable leatherette. Works very nicely but limited colors.

Love this! Thank you for sharing!

This is great looking and so portable. I have so many iatrogenic circulatory issues I can’t fly, so I don’t get to go with my husband on his fencing trips anymore (missed Machu Picchu and S. France!) He’ll probably get to go to more now that he’s ranked 10th in the US. If I make him one of these maybe he’ll remember what he took pictures of! And choosing decorations will be easy :wink:

One more…used the debossed patch shown in one of my other posts.
Also including files for round patch and notebook cover with stitch holes.
I used proofgrade medium leather for cover and thick leather for patch.
