Quite a while ago I made this martial arts training journal for my husband. Such a manly man journal, I must say.
It started out as a pair of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gi pants. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s a martial art.
Gi pants are made from sturdy cotton, so I used a denim sewing machine needle for the entire thing.
I used the side woven ribbon and part of the drawstring as bookmarks, and I moved the patches to where they looked good on the cover and inner pockets.
Yep, I used my comp book cover pattern, found in the Spring 2013 issue of Stitch Craft Create magazine. This project was actually one of my prototypes.
A dude’s journal, right there. My guy loves it.
