One of the first wee books I sold on Etsy was this sweet little wrapped up journal. I came up with the design one rainy Sunday afternoon and thought I'd just try it as a small book, but really wanted to make a giant one.
I thought I'd share with you a few of the wrap styles I've played around with.

Recycled Chocolate Leather Wrap Sketchbook - Sold June 2009
This journal above I sold at a local market to an artist, so never wrote about it. It was about 5 x 4 inches, I remember how it felt to run my fingers over the soft leather... when the customer took it away I waved goodbye in my heart...
Wrapped up Words - Sold August 2010
Since then, I still have not made the giant one, but I have made larger ones - I thought I'd give them a comeback.
So, over the last couple of days I have rustled together a new version of these babies, and made it into a wee necklace. It's a little larger than my other miniature book necklaces but I like the rusticity of this, with all the wrapped up leather. A project I much enjoy.
