I learned how to make a book out of a single sheet of paper and applied it to a single sheet of stitchpaper. The result is this Trinket Journal with journal pockets inside, a raggedy spine and trinkety goodness tied to
the spine with waxed linen floss. I am experimenting with the idea of journals/sketchbooks made up of pages you take with you and work on, then insert into a master book. That way you don't have to carry a big book with you, just a sheet or two of nice paper (I'm using watercolor paper) to work on.
