From the same material that brought you "Octobag". New this autumn...

OCTOPUS DIARY COVER


"Kept cocking up the measurements" - The Daily Problem

"It'll probably never fit another notebook I buy" - the Realist


But enough with the pessimism and on to the photos!

I followed another of Heartofmary's amazing tutorials, but ended up making my own version to fit my diary.
Yes, it is back to front, because I'm silly and didn't think about whether the pattern would be upside down, but it still opens at the front! The button is from my stash and has "MADE IN ENGLAND" written on it.




And open, revealing the inside of my Violent Veg diary:





I can't wait to get back to university and have a real reason to use my diary!

I got it from my local market. The stalls there buy in job lots of discontinued fabric. I can't remember the name of the designer, but it's going for 3 a metre, and there's some amazing designs! I made a bag out of the same stuff - if you search for "octobag" Cheesy

Thanks for the comments!
