Notebook Covers All Around

Busy here making those just too cute notebook covers, thanks again to Craft Apple. The upper left was made by my 11 year-old daughter, I think she did a fantastic job. Her twin sister doesn't care to sew but didn't want to miss out on a cover. She picked out the aquas, yellows and pinks for her cover and then went into the kitchen and made a batch a peanut butter cookies. Yes, very yummy, she is an excellent cookie baker. I made the fall color one and noticed 5 of my 6 charm packs all are in the fall colors. Was I ready for fall or what?
Notebook covers are going to be a big item on my Christmas sewing list. I told my twins, we will buy 10-15 composition notebooks at Target tomorrow night. I need to restock on Heat and Bond lite, too. Oh, darn a trip to the fabric store!

    Those are very pretty! When I have done covers for composition books, I often include a loop or pocket for a pen and a ribbon to use as a page marker.

    Love the fabric choices.

    They look fantastic! I've got some of the same charm packs just waiting to be made into notebook covers as well. You're the only one I know of that have used the tutorial, but it makes it worth it to see you making beautiful things with your girls.

    Looks like the 11-year-old has an eye for sewing and creating. And peanut butter cookies can't be beat! Two very talented girls!
    Aren't the fall colors just beautiful.
    Just today I pulled out 3 notebooks from the stash waiting to be someone's gift!

  6. Your notebook covers look great. They are on my ever-growing to do list.
