RMLS EXCLUSIVE: DS-014 The Classic Notebook Digital Pattern
The Classic Notebook pattern is a PDF leather crafting template to create a notebook or passport leather cover/wallet. The leather pattern employs a “mix and match” approach to combine different elements to create various notebook and passport covers - Build Your Own Cover (BYOC). I have included nine of the many possible combinations - ‘recipes’ - that mention the pattern elements that you will need and the skill level required. Additionally, in your download folder, you will find a couple of images showcasing the included Classic Notebook Cover variations that you can show to your customers to assist them in choosing the cover design they want - a 'menu' so to speak for them to order from.
The Classic notebook cover is designed to fit Field Notes notebooks (5.5 by 3.5 inches) or Moleskine Cahier Journals (pocket size: 5.5 by 3.5 inches) or standard size passports (B7 - 88/125mm) plus a drawing/writing device plus various number of cards depending on the design you choose to make. The modular journal pattern is a great way to match your customers specific needs with a custom design and capacity of the notebook cover you will craft for them. Some of the possible designs will be fitting for two notebooks and a writing device, while other can be focused on wallet functionalities fitting one notebook and more cards for example. The pattern also includes 3mm optional trim allowance for easier and smoother edge finishing.
