Something Olde, Something New…

Last night I got an itch to finally turn some of the small notebooks I have been holding onto for years…and years… into mini art journals. I got out my glue stick and went to town glueing the pages together for strength.

Once that was done, I thought it was time to try a project I’ve been stewing over for the past few months…

…making a kind of Fauxdori cover to hold them in!!

 And because I’ll be embellishing the cover, I machine quilted it. Love!

This took about an hour to make, and the notebooks fit in it beautifully!

I will be more than happy to share how I made these in another post, I’ll need one for my Moleskines.

There’s  nothing like mooching around your own stash of supplies to making something special for yourself. Well, back to my Christmas gift makings.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Have a great day,

~Patty

  1. oh i love this patty! i’ve made a few fauxdoris but since i don’t sew, i make them out of heavy cardboard and cover them with papers, paint, etc.i have quite a few of the small journals as well, and love having 2 or 3 in one place to use for different things, (gluing pages together is something i do as well) please share how you made yours. perhaps you might make some of these fauxdori covers for your shop (she hinted and giggled) lolol love that cigar box too! tfs
