My daughter's dance class is over next week and I wanted to make a little gift for her instructors.  I found a tutorial for a journal cover here: http://sew4home.com/projects/fabric-art-a-accents/553-french-desk-set-journal-cover and after a slight alteration, made two of them. The alteration was that I made the seams go to the interior instead of folding it and sewing it around the outside with a top stitch. I used fabric that I had on hand in my stash and zipper pulls that I salvaged from old purses. Thanks for looking.

The two journals from the front, closed.


One of the journals open with pocket on the left, pen holder on the right:

Thank you Belladune, I like them too.  I was just thinking these would also make good "end of the year" gifts for my kid's school teachers too.

Those are lovely! Is the one on the right patchwork? It looks like individual squares sewn together.  Smiley

I'd love to take credit for the patchwork, but no, it's just the print on the fabric.  I don't even remember where I got it.  I was just using up scraps.  Thanks.
