Tandy's Trucker Log Book

9 posts in this topic

I just bought the Tandy truckers log book pattern. I was wondering if anyone has done this one before? Reason is I wanted to know if someone had pictures of the inside? Can't make it out in the small black and white picture. If someone could post some pictures of the inside it would help alot. Also can't make out what the log is. Is it a pad of paper or a sleeve to hold a single peice of paper. Like I said I could REALLY use some help. Thank you. John

I don't have the pattern, but I do use a log book. The log book (there are several sizes/versions) consists of a top and bottom page for each day. Some use a carbon transfer sheet between them, others use carbonless copies. The books are bound or stapled on one side. Carbonless versions have a fold over divider to put between the 'active' set of pages and those behind it. If you have a Pilot, Love's, TA, Flying J.....or any other truck stop near by, you should be able to find the log books there. ....or google 'driver's log book' for some pictures.

Thanks for the reply Twinoaks. That helps now I know where to get the books. I was hoping someone who made this before could share a picture of the insides. The picture that came with the pattern is to dark to see any details. Maybe someone will chime in with one. Anyway Happy Thanksgiving!! John

I'd think that it'd be just like any notebook cover, with the outside panel and a shorter panel on the inside to tuck the covers of the driver's log into. If it's for one of the carbonless versions, there might be an additional flap to insert between pages to prevent writing on the next several pages.

Ah....that is more like a wallet, with the pockets on the left side layered like card slots. Let me do some digging.....in the mean time, go over to the wallet/purse forum and read the pinned topic by Kevin King on how he makes wallet guts.

How about this?

The colors indicate the stitch lines - green for the small divider pockets, pink for a turned edge, blue for the outside edges. The panel on the right side is only attached at the right seam (edge of the piece), and is actually two panels that form a pocket of sorts to hold the back cover of the book.

On the left side, everything is attached to the largest panel. The largest panel is only sewn on 3 sides, making a pocket behind it.. Do the horizontal edges first (pink), then sew the dividers (green), then the vertical edge on the right side of the panel (pink again).

The blue stitch lines should be the last sewn, as they are what is holding all the panels to the cover.
