Cover for journal/needlebook/address book etc.

I finished the cover for the journal Christmas gift.

The piece of filet lace I used for the foundation was not long enough to make the flap so I added an extra piece of wide lace to either end.

You can clearly see the elastic cording I threaded across the top and bottom to hold it snug.  And it makes it easy to transfer the cover to another book.

It is exactly the same technique I used when I covered the journal I use to record stitches.

On this though I used the gold elastic they sell to wrap Christmas packages.  The foundation for this cover was a vintage crocheted placemat.  There are more directions here.

Beautiful and a great tip about the elastic along the edges. I've never made a pretty lace journal cover, mine have always been fabric. But I might just have to try one after seeing yours :)
