What advice would you give someone starting this project? The pattern came out a little short for me so I folded the front cover pocket allowing the added flap to show bout an inch-I think it added to the design. I also sewed in a ribbon page holder that wasn't included in the pattern about 1 inch from center. I also put a little fabric glue on ends of ribbon so they wouldn't fray.

Really gorgeous - I love how you patchworked bits and pieces to make the covers, and the embellishments really add a nice touch. I think you did a great job! (There's a little error in the link to the tutorial --- it's http://www.vanessachristenson.com/2010/01/tutorial-composition-book-cover.html)
