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.

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.
