Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Suitable for beginners who have completed a few projects or taken a basic sewing class.

Pattern Description:

Notepad Cover Sewing pattern includes easy to follow step-by-step instructions and images as well as a template and instructions for self-cover buttons.

Make this fun and vibrant, padded cover to jazz up a plain, hardback notepad / writing pad or book of suitable size. Suitable for standard A5 size. I've used lovely bright fabrics from Michael Miller Fabrics, any medium weight cottons of your choice will work well with this pattern.

There's a useful pen pocket to front and a tab closure to keep your notes secure. I have added some matching buttons, covered in main fabric, which complete the fun look of the cover perfectly.

Make this for yourself or would be ideal Christmas gift or Birthday present.

This pattern is suitable for beginners with some experience and beyond.
