Make your own Moleskine notebook

This tutorial recommends using a sewing machine, but don’t worry if you haven’t got one. You can hand sew it even if you’ve never threaded a needle in your life. You will need a large blunt needle or bodkin, some strong thread and something to make holes with – a thumb tack perhaps or the point of a pair of scissors. Just be careful not to take someone’s eye out, and protect your work surface with some thick card or a blob of sticky tack. You can find some guidance on pamphlet stitch here
