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.
Thanks for stopping by – I’ll have more journals to share soon.

I started collecting postcards as a child. What a great idea to bind them!
