www.spoonflower.com recently did a free swatch day where you could order two swatches of any weight fabric at no cost! A swatch works out to be 8 x 8 inches, not very big but there's still a lot you can do with a piece of fabric that size!

I got a swatch of the upholstery weight fabric to test how it would hold up as a book  cover. So here are the two tiny books I made for jotting down notes. They are just over 3 x 2.75 inches big, and they have 40 pages of mixed papers in them. I always like to have some kind of book in my bag to jot down little notes and stuff on and that is exactly what I plan to use these things for!

OMG, how did I miss free swatches. 8x8 is a pretty good size. I'm amazed at what you turned it into. I love the fabric, and little books make me happy!  Grin
