I don't have patterns for these and wouldn't even know how to go about making one, really, but you can click to enlarge and look at the details if you want to make some. I think you could print these off to look at.
I put 2 pages per piece of pellon, and then doubled it over. Each piece is half the size of a sheet of typing paper.
I sewed 3 pages together at a time on the cut ends, and then sewed those pieces together. The cover is a piece of quilted material that I sewed seam binding around. I opened the sewn pages up to the middle, then centered the pages on the cover, sewing in and out to sew the pages in up the back of the "spine" of the cover, making sure that the stitches showing on the cover were small.
I did 2 pages per piece of pellon, and the pellon is cut the size of half a sheet of typing paper. The pages are folded and then sewn together two or three at a time, then all of those pieces sewn together with a blanket stitch. I then opened the sewn pages to the middle of the pages, and sewed them onto the cover, making sure the stitches on the cover are small and aligned. The cover is made of a quilted fabric edged with sewn on bias tape. I sewed a button on the front and a ribbon on the back of the cover so I could loop the ribbon around the button to keep the book closed when not using.
