Stamped journal cover

My latest large project was this journal cover which I finished sewing together last night.

I used my 14th century lattice design stamp and stamped three rows from the top and bottom stitching grooves towards the middle of the piece and staggered where each row ended on the front. The piece was dyed with oil dye and closes with a strap and brass buckle.

The cover is lined with red deerskin suede and hand-sewed together with black linen thread. It is large enough to hold a standard 5" x 7" refill journal.
