Hi there! I am back for the third day in a row with another project I created for Eileen Hull’s booth at CHA/Creativation. This journal pocket I created for my foam-dori using the House/Pocket Stitchlits Diecuts.
I cut four house/pocket diecuts from felt and “stacked” each diecuts end up on end (line up the holes) before stitching together because if you don’t it will make it hard to stitch all four pieces of felt together. I stitched the sides together to create pockets and the flaps I stitched individually. I used cross stitch thread and did a back stitch on all edges. You can Google or Bing back stitching if you are unsure how to do this stitch.
The bottom flaps I used Fabri-Tac to adhere it to the pocket and the top flaps I added a velcro dot to keep each pocket closed.
I also cut a couple of felt flowers diecuts from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Collection and adhered to the flaps of the pocket journal. Now there is a place to hold stickers and washi tape samples in the foam-dori journal. Be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s BLOG for the latest from her Inspiration Team and as always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
Hi there! I am back again with yet another project that I created for Eileen Hull’s booth at CHA/Creativation. This diecut I am very excited about its release since it can be used to make planners or dori’s as they are called.
I used the Journal Diecut to cut the front and back of the journal from foam. I adhered the front and back together at the spine.
I used Fabri-Tac to adhered lace to the outside of the spine and inside. I also added Ric Rac and Pom Pom trim to dress up the outside of the dori.
I dressed up the inside of the dori with large Ric Rac and a lace pocket to hold notes, receipts or stickers.
I threaded elastic cording through the holes twice and tied off. This will hold four notebooks and in the center I threaded more elastic cording through the spine and tied off. This will keep this dori closed.
As you can see these journals are very easy to put together and they can be used for anything. Be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s BLOG and see what the other team members have been up to.If you have any questions please let me know!
Thanks for stopping by, hop your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
