For a swap-bot swap I hade to make a profile suprise for my partner. She likes shabby chic and notebooks (the paper kind) so I made her a notebook cosy. It felt really weird to stain, bleach and torn it after I made it. A bit scary even because I wasn't sure it would turn out alright. Just in case I'd screw up I made "before" pictures too. But I think it turned out quite nice.













This before the staining, bleaching and torning:

It looks lovely! Im sure your partner will love it  Smiley I would have been worried about staining and roughing it up too but you did a really nice job.
