Hello friends and visitors, Today is check-in day for the Smalls SAL hosted by Heather at Stitching Lotus, so if you would like to show something small that you have stitched this month, just click on my sidebar button for more information to join this group.
I embroidered this little pattern called Mon Journal by Veronique Enginger some time ago, but hadn´t got around to making it into anything, so this week I tried my hand at making a notebook.
Just using cardboard, fabric from my stash - an old skirt actually - which matched the design perfectly and the usual odds and ends for decorating. I had to make a few holes in the cover to thread the pages with ribbon.
Not too bad. I added a button on the side to close the notebook and then decided I didn´t like it and it wasn´t necessary anyway. Some embellishments to the front.
I glued some rather boring paper to the inside covers which was what I had on hand but of course this would look much better with a pretty design, however I daren´t get interested in scrapbooking and all that gorgeous paraphernalia - don´t need a divorce at my age.
Thank you for visiting. See you next week.
