It seems like I've been seeing these covered notebooks or journals everywhere on blogs lately. So how could I pass up the opportunity to get a few new fat quarters and give it a try. Plus it was my friends Birthday so I thought it would make the perfect gift.
I'm trying pay a little more attention to detail lately in my sewing. I think that's one of the things I love about the blog Nana Company (I know, I'm obsessed), she does a lot of cute little extra things in her sewing that adds so much. Anyways.............that's what I was going for in this little strip on the back, detail. I found this lace at Walmart of all places and thought it would work great.
I don't know why it took me forever to figure out how to add these pockets for the book to slide into. I don't know why I'm admitting it either. Once I figure it out it was, I felt pretty stupid.
I'm not wild about the braided jute I used for the garland, but it worked. I think small white ric rack would have looked better.
