This weekend I got to play dress up with a few composition notebooks. I bought 10 of these ugly little notebooks at 35 cents a piece. I measured and remeasured and drew up my pattern and started cutting. I was more pleased with the second one (below), but when I went to put it on another notebook, it wouldn’t fit! Who knew that out of 10 notebooks, I chose the one mutant to make my pattern off of. It is 1/4 inch shorter than the other nine. *sigh* Does this only happen to me? Now I have 2 too small notebook covers that fit the same notebook. Grrrrr.
Inspiration for these came from all over, but most recently from Cindi. And finally, a recently finished baby blanket for a boy: baby blue chenille and a fire-truck flannel print.
