I made this awhile ago, and as my current trend with blogging seems to go, I didn't blog about it. Sooo, now I'm remedying that.
I used this tutorial from http://smashedpeasandcarrots.blogspot.com/2011/09/fabric-covered-composition-notebook.html.
It was fairly easy to make and follow the directions, though I did admittedly have some trouble sewing the flaps to the main body of cover, hence no close-ups of that part because it's pretty messy. But that's more to do with my still-learning abilities than the tutorial.
I've written in the journal exactly 3 times with pictures, but the cover really is beautiful and I fully intend to add more soon....
The fabric is Joel Dewberry, from one of the Aviary lines I believe....... The inside polka dot is another Hobby Lobby find I think. Or a remnant from Jo-anns. I've got to start writing stuff down. Another use for the journal! Enjoy.
