Yeah... after the journal we did earlier, we just had to see if we could manage something even tinier. I think this is about the limit of my present leather-stitching skills. *g*

Oddly enough, it's really, really hard to sew something that small. Heh.

Since you said you'd like to know when it was ready, [livejournal.com profile] cairistiona7 - I just got the journal I posted earlier listed for sale on our site - here - along with these, and another little journal necklace. We've got two more journals nearly finished, so they should be going up soon. ^^

While on vacation, Neffie and I saw a couple necklaces that gave us ideas for things we wanted to try, one of them being a little journal-on-a-chain-type thing. Only we decided to make it smaller, should be a bit sturdier because of the way it's constructed, and, of course, we had to give it a little aged, steampunk touch. *g*

After finally gathering the materials we'd need, we had our first trial run on making them today, and it's looking promising!

\o/ Heheh, the process of figuring out how to do it all was pretty time-consuming, and we definitely need to get some proper leatherworking needles (I think my poor fingers have more holes in them than the leather does XD). So this one's a little rougher than I'd hope future versions would be, but still. Yay for teeny things! We've already got a couple more partially completed, in different colors, so here's hoping the final assembly on those goes a little more smoothly.
