Sunday Leather Craft 2″ Chunky FN TN

Well, it appears I’m not quite done acquiring traveler’s notebooks. After Tintin posted yummy photos of her new A5 TN made by a local leathercrafter on an FB TN group, I could not resist ordering one of my own! Since my super-wide Macata seemed to be working for me, I requested a super chunky TN in the field notes size with stitching and pockets. Sunday Leather Craft took my custom order quite willingly, and outside of those specifications, I left all else to their decision, including the color and type of leather. Here is what I received.

Isn’t she gorgeous?? It has a reinforced 2″ spine with all the lovely stitching that I requested, plus a really nice thick sturdy elastic to hold it all closed. The leather turned out to be this beautiful caramel brown, almost yellow color which looks quite classy.

I had also requested six interior elastics, so that I can slot in a lot of inserts. I’m really enamored of the planner-wallet system, so the TN needs to be able to hold my wallet inserts, card inserts, as well as my planner inserts. This chunky goodness can take 8 inserts quite comfortably without any overhang, thanks to that humongous 2″ spine as well as a generous amount of extra leather on the side. In fact even with my pens there still aren’t any overhang. I currently have six inserts here, and there seems to be a lot more space for more!

The leather itself is quite thick, but not too stiff to become unmanageable. Not even the further thickening due to the pockets I requested made it too hard to handle. This pocket configuration is really quite intriguing and very useful.

In direct sunlight the yellow tint of the leather really shows! I’m quite pleased with this and Sunday Leather Craft was definitely able to produce the TN I was envisioning. Visit their Facebook page if you would like to get your own!
