With just a few pieces of fabric and a composition notebook you can create your own unique journal cover! I love journals, but hate using them up - so I designed this quilted cover for a composition notebook. Now I can write as much as I like and be able to use my beautiful journal as long as I want to - just swap out a new notebook as needed! These are so much fun to make, are terrific as gifts, and you are welcome to make them for sale as well - they have been a huge hit as bible covers locally. You definitely won't want to make just one of these! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic sewing skills SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Fits a standard size composition notebook How to figure dimensions for making different sizes

I've been making things as long as I can remember, thanks to my Mom who is a great seamstress! My favorite has been quilting for 25 years now and now that my husband and I are empty nesters I am enjoying the opportunity to expand my expertise and creativity in this art. Pattern writing is a new outlet for me and I am enjoying sharing my creations. I especially love making patterns that are encouraging for beginner quilters - I try to make sure my directions are clear and well illustrated to take the frustration out of quilting and make it a joyful process! Thanks so much for looking at my patterns!
