A little something I’ve been working on…

Quilted coverings for those cheap composition notebooks. I’m determined to use up some of my scraps. The scrap pile is growing out of control!

Use them as journals or sketchbooks. Keep track of ideas, shopping lists, or whatever!

I swear I’ve seen these notebooks with graph paper as well. But when I went to Staples today, they barely even had the usual notebooks. All I found was two puny little piles in the corner on a bottom shelf. When the back-to-school sales are on there are stacks and stacks in a variety of colors. Guess I’ll have to stock up next August.

    Open the cover! I wanna see the inside! Those are GREAT, and if you buy a fabric covered one at Borders, you’ll pay big bucks, and it won’t be half as nice!

    I too would like to see the inside. I’ve been meaning to make a few but alas…I still sit here at the computer.

    You’ve done a beautiful job with those scraps! I’d send you my scrap drawer full of bits if they’d turn into something so gorgeous! :o)

    Oh my GOODNESS those are beautiful!!!!! You know, people would totally buy those from you, if you ever could bear to part with them. Think of it as more stash-enhancing money! đŸ˜‰

    These are adorable. I like how you added some contrasting fabric as a spine. I feel like my scrap bags are growing when I sleep at night.

    Can you do a tutorial on the themebook covers? I am trying to replicate yours but don’t sew very well.
    I love them!

Go ahead, say something...
