Vintage Page Designs: Vintage Postcard Album

October 5, 2012

Vintage Postcard Album

I've been stitch binding more journals this week and here's one I made using vintage postcards I had lying around.  I was inspired by a Vintage Postcard Journal created by Kara Haupt that I shared in my Friday Favorites last week.


Here's the binding: it's single sheet sewing using an exposed coptic stitch.  This particular method requires the use of four needles at once and it made my little brain hurt at first, but I finally figured it out. 


Most of the postcards are blank, so I can write notes on them, but a few have gorgeous handwriting, postmarks and stamps on their backs.



 Thanks for stopping by - I'll have more journals to share soon.

Ali

I started collecting postcards as a child. What a great idea to bind them!
