Composition Book Cover – Training Journal

21 March

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.
