Ok, I've decided to move forward instead of taking backwards steps. Lesson learned for the next time, need to figure out corners a bit better before the next notebook. They're not that bad under casual scrutiny.
I've created the pocket. I prepared the flyleaves, the hinges and the pocket flap. I actually goofed when I assembled it, not attaching the bottom of the pocket to the flyleaf. I rectified that by adding a seperate hinge on the bottom. Could definitely be improved upon, but I've never really found a clear step by step on creating the pockets so made do with guesses and until I find a better way, this will work. Little touch and go with the glue though. I messed up and put glue on one of the wrong panels of the flap so its a little marred where I realized my mistake and pulled it apart while it was already partially dry. Its hidden on the inside of the pocket though. In then end, I do believe my flyleaves are a bit too big, with the hinges sticking out between the covers slighly. I believe I saw a thread where TMLee finally fixed this in his own method. I'll have to dig that up again.
I apologize for how much I'm spamming my own thready, and how image heavy it is. I hope it's not bothering anyone.
Two side hinges and one bottom hinge glued in place. This view is the surface that will be glued to the cover.
Hing is 4 one inch pleats. Glad I decided not to go all the way to the edge with the hinge, but to have a little hole, cause it gave me space to correct my error in not attaching the bottom of the pocket, with a hinge.
Thankfully you can't see where I had to pull the paper apart where I shouldn't have put glue.
Preparing to apply glue to the back of the flyleaf with the attached pocket.
This is a book press, in case you can't tell. Hehe, Ron-style. Pressing the front cover flyleaf after gluing. This one I tried putting the glue on the cover instead of the flyleaf. TMLee always says to put the glue on the denser material but I wasn't sure which that was so did one of each to see how it went.
