Amenity Home recently sent me some of their fabrics to try out. I have a few things in the works for them…thinking about some placemats or a pillow…but in the meantime I decided to cover a notebook with a scrap of their Trail in Cream & Moss pattern. I bought one of those Composition Notebooks with graph paper in it (I’ve been using the graph paper to make my own embroidery patterns) and it was just to drab for me.
First, I made a little embroidered label for the cover. Then, I cut out a piece of fabric using the dimensions of the notebook, plus 1 1/2 inches all the way around. Measured where I wanted the label to be and sewed it on the fabric. Finished up by hot gluing the fabric to the inside of the cover. I also trimmed up the corners, so there was no overlapping fabric bits. Now, I have a sweet notebook for all my embroidery pattern inspirations!
I will be sure to keep you posted with any future projects that I complete with the Amenity fabrics….or soon I decide what I want to do.
