Fabric covered notebooks

Well Christmas is almost here and I wanted a nice easy Monday make as I have lots of other handmade Christmas presents on the go, Chilli jam, pyjama’s, more knickers etc. So there is no sewing involved with today’s make, only sticking. All the fabric is available at Trixie Lixie it’s from the Oh Deer! range by Moda. And the trimming is from our Bias binding selection.

You will also need some double sided sticky tape.

First of all I drew around the book and then added a 3cm border before cutting out the fabric.

to blog 231With the notebook closed stick the fabric to the front of the book, at each side of the spine, top and bottom, snip the fabric then stick the fabric to the back of the book

to blog 220Open the book and put double sided sticky tape on the inside cover, mitre the edges by cutting the corner’s off then fold fabric inside the book and secure.

to blog 235 to blog 234 to blog 233Do the same to the back and then snip off the excess fabric at the top and bottom of the spine. I decorated mine by adding a strip of bias binding using the double sided tape, I also added a little envelope to the front of the small one for keeping things in.
