This is a design deviation of the popular and famous Midori Travelers notebook. The Midori Travelers notebook has a few fatal flaws in my opinion.

  1. The notebook refills are hard to purchase
  2. The size of the notebook is not standard to international paper sizes nor US sizes
  3. The cover nor the accessories are readily available at neighborhood stores. Ie. Target, Walmart, Art shops
  4. It is rather expensive for what amounts to leather and elastic

I addressed these problems by making a version that will accommodate 3.5" x  5.5" or 90mm x 140mm (roughly A6) notebooks. You can find Moleskine Cahier Journal 3 packs at Target, for example. This notebook cover with a rubber band will take all three notebooks and make it pocketable. Again, the entire project was made in CAD before I cut a single piece of leather. I cut it on the laser and laced it up with elastic.

If you are interested in the template or interested in me making you one, please let me know. I am in the process of setting up digital downloads for multiple projects (Most of which reside on my computer because I haven't had time to post). I also make different products out of leather, wood, felt, acrylic, and other materials... soon to be posted. Also considering Etsy...
