While this blog has morphed into my job (for which I’m thankful!) it also serves as an online journal for projects that I’ve made. I can look back and read the adjustments I made in a pattern, and see what the fit was before I make something again, but my blog posts don’t capture some of the fun details that went on in the background of making things. I tweaked my “handmade love letter” and turned into a fun way to journal about the things I make, and you can download the file and do it too!
Something I’m always drawn to about handmade projects is how they’re imbued with other aspects of your life while you’re making them! This especially applies to portable projects that come along in the car, like the alphabet hand embroidery project I stitched an entire summer, bumping along in our road trip and full of my then toddler’s fingerprints, but also to what I make in my sewing room.

It’s easy to make notes about the actual pattern too; I taped a little picture in but a full size print would work too! How would you use a journal like this?
