I've been working on a custom order for 15 to 20 journal, all either dark brown or black, 48 pages, 2 signatures with my envelope style flap and thong closure.
I've got 5 sewn up, ready to be trimmed and finished. I choose a fast stitching pattern, a variation on the long stitch. One of them is the machine style stitch from Keith Smith. Usually the sewing takes me longer than the covers, but in this case, the covers have been taking me a lot longet than the sewing.
