Now that Santa has delivered the goods, I can share what I’ve been up to for the past month. In early November I took a class from Jake Finch, shown here making a custom cover for a notebook binder. Oh, what fun it was creating these custom covers for 3 ring binders, composition books, sketch books, book markers and note pads.After I made one, I decided to modify the directions. Since the lining of the cover really doesn’t show, I started using plain fabric instead of the expensive fashion fabric.This is a composition book next to a 3 ring binder. I also figured since the inside of the pocket doesn’t show, I’d use plain fabric for that too. So, here’s a little coordinated set for Amber, who is going back to school to get her Master’s degree in Nursing. She’ll need lots of places to keep notes, and how fun to have it all coordinate?After working on these projects for a while, I got even more creative and added a pocket on the inside of the 3 ring binder (and used inexpensive plain fabric to line the pocket.)Here are Corrie’s coordinated covers. Can you see the “C” I quilted in the front? Then I went to a denim theme for my handym’aa’m, whose business card reads: Marie Kay. Problem Solved.
