Kristyn here for this project. In addition to being so much fun.... She is meticulous. She is careful. She measures accurately. She is so neat and careful. I am not all of this....(at least not all at the same time). I'm more of a "wing it and hope it works out" kinda girl.
slipcovers. I even learned that my sewing machine has a thread clipper built into it! (who knew!?!) When we got to the step where we were sewing the entire thing together, we had our fingers crossed. And it worked out!!! (I love it when that happens)
I've got a bunch of other noteboks that could sure use some sprucing up and I really think these slipcovered notebooks would make great gifts for friends or even teachers. After making the first slipcover, the second one was so much less taxing on my mind....it was easier and went together much faster. (although it was 10 times less fun without Kristyn here!)
Maybe this weekend will find me some more time for sewing and recovering... I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend and that you spend some time doing something you enjoy! Oh, and I want to shout out a special thanks to Virginia of Gingercake for a great pattern! Check out her blog for tons of great inspiration.
