I have just started using a new noteobook with a black leather case and I wanted to jazz up my notebook. So I decided to make a fabric cover for it.
It is an A5 notbook and this is how I did it...
I cut out my fabric just abit taller than the book and enough to go from side to side x 2.
Put the best sides together and sew almost all the way round, leaving a couple inches gap, for later.
Turn inside out. I then added a ribbon. Sew this on in place.
Fold the two inside inwards, pin and sew the a straight line across the top and bottom.
Choose some other fabric to make a small flower embellishment
Cut some circles, I did this roughly as I didn't want to it to be too perfect!
Layer them on top.
Sew the edges down, try using different stiches for each round.
Add a button to the front.
Sew your flower into place.
And thats it! Done, simple! And you can reuse the cover for when you have finished with the notebook - or just make another one!
