At it’s most basic, the Midori Traveller’s Notebook is an elastic-woven leather cover that holds notebooks inside. This minimalist style notebook not only works well as a travel notebook, as it’s name suggests, but is truly multi-functional and multi-purpose. So, whether you are looking for a simple day planner, a recipe book or a diary, this notebook style might
be just what you’re looking for.

What makes the Midori Traveller’s Notebook popular is the fact that it is easily refillable – this eliminates having to replace notebooks frequently since the leather cover can be reused. And with frequent use, the leather cover ages beautifully as it picks up scratches and marks. For those looking for a vegan alternative, microfiber PU leather and vegan suede fabric make for beautiful covers.

In this tutorial you will learn how to make your very own Midori refills. Once complete, you will use the refills to measure and make the leather cover. Finally, you will learn how to attach a book belt to the notebook in order to secure the notebook and its contents.
