Patchwork Journal cover


Journal cover, originally uploaded by chick chick sewing.

Patchwork journal cover made based on the tutorial from the Quilts & Gifts magazine Spring 2008 issue.  I added some original features like the fabric covered button and strings to wrap around the journal cover.




The journal cover is made to snugly fit the 7 1/2 x 9 3/4 composition notebook.  Like this one that I got from the local Staples store ($1/notebook).



When opened, it looks like this with the notebook inside.




Other images (front and back):







I like the finished product, however, the width of the journal cover was a bit too small for the notebook... Can you see the inside flap sticking out from the frontcover?




Next time I make this,  I think I will make it about an inch wider... Yes, a trial and error is the key to success in sewing, just like anything else we do in our lives...!!
