Lately I've been reading about Moleskin 'hacks' - customising your Moleskine to suit you. I've always plastered stickers all over the front of each of my mini folios, but I thought I'd try an idea one smart little forum user had for adding a pen holder.
It's dead simple.
1 fresh Moleskine (in this case my new 2009 diary)Step 1
1 nail (Can't find one? Steal one from a picture hook like I did)
1 hammer (or shoe, or brick)
1 nice button
needle and thread
Basically you're sewing a button to the front of your moleskine.
So mark where the button holes are...
..rest your moleskine on a surface you can safely nail through and nail holes in it to correspond with the button holes.
Sew on the button.
If you're a crap sewer (pun intended) like me, you'll end up with a rather untidy looking inner page.
So hide it.
Technically there isn't a Step 5. You're done.
But here's how you can now attach a pen or pencil
In your face Moleskine! Pen successfully attached.
