I am in the midst of moving, so I have been away from the blogging world and I have missed it!
I won’t be finished with the moving process (packing, cleaning, unpacking, cleaning) until 2 weeks from now.
I thought I’d share a notebook cover I made not long ago. It went very quickly and it was fun.
For more examples of notebook or journal covers, see HERE.
I wanted something practical but also pretty…
It’s great to have it with me whether I need to take notes or to refer to notes.
Here’s what the front outside looks like. I used three different fabrics, …really just pieces that I had left over from other projects. I liked how they looked together.
As you can see, I added some lace, a button, and an elastic closure.
Some of the lace I used was left-over from my daughter’s wedding dress. … Sigh….
It was a tiny piece but I wanted something special like that to give it some sentimental value.
This is the inside without the notebook in it. I put in a red ribbon so I could find my place quickly.
I just hate when I can’t find my place, don’t you?
I added a small long pocket on the inside front for a pen and a highlighter,
and in the back I added a cute, small pocket for little notebooks, bookmarks,
or some chocolate or gum. That’s always a nice surprise. :)
Here’s the outside open so you can see the whole thing.
It’s nice to have something personal, …it makes me want to write in it.
Sometimes I sit and write in the mornings, just jotting down my thoughts.
It goes perfectly with a nice, hot cup of tea.
Happy Sewing! ..Happy Writing!
