Journal cover variation

I stitched this whimsical girly some time ago and she has been sitting patiently waiting for me to make her up into a journal cover. 'At last', she declares!
I have used my previous journal cover tutorial again for basic dimensions. 
The stitched panel was too big to include a scrap-pieced strip on the front cover, so I sneaked one in on the back instead:
And another on the inside:
And I used some ric-rac to trim the top & bottom edges:
The stitchery design comes from the lovely Elsa Mora blog, as a free pattern here
Of course, you can use any stitchery design you desire to come up with a similar result.
I have had some great comments from several girls who have made up journal covers from my tutorial. I will be back soon to showcase some of their fantastic interpretations.
