Before and After

Oh the magic of fabric!! What a difference it makes. I have had this composition notebook for sometime and that time is starting to take its toll on the notebook. It is fraying and falling apart and generally a mess. I use it for everything and anything and take it everywhere.
I found a tutorial on making a notebook cover here at Joy's Hope blog. It was easy to follow and fast! And my notebook is pretty now. How fun is that?

Thanks for the link--and love your fabric. I've recovered notebooks with fabric and glue but never thought to sew one. Thanks chica!

oh so cute! I wish I carried a notebook, just so I could make one of those. Oh, and because it sounds like something an organized person might do, and I wish with all my heart that I was organized!!

Leslie, once again you inspire me! By the way, where is the photo of you??? I know, I know, mine is on the way! ;0

I love this idea. This inspires me to do something similar for my son. I would love for him to have a nice journal for his handwriting practice, yet the blank books are so expensive and with small lines. Thanks for the idea. :)

I'm a friend of Meredith's, by the way. Your blog is very enjoyable.
