Hand bound Camo Journal

This is a journal I made at the request of one of my friends. Usually I make journals that are a little on the feminine side, so decidedly this one had to man up a bit. I recycled a pair of used and abused camo cargos to make the cover, I used a belt loop and inside out fabric to make the strap and trimmed it with a nickel button. It is hand-bound with cotton embroidery floss . The pages are post consumer recycled paper. I hope he likes it!

Baby Blanket

Here are some phots of a baby blanket I made for a friend for her beautiful newborn baby girl.
I made her shower invitations in a lamb theme so I decided to follow suit with the blanket. It is made from cotton flannel, chenille, and satin embroidery thread.
