Quick gift

I'm back! Still getting used to the new computer (the screen is twice as big as the one we had before! Everything is huge!) and I had another Economics exam yesterday... Hence the recent lack of posts. But I thought I'd share a little gift I made for a friend's birthday last week. This post over at Sweeet Jessie's blog is what inspired me.

I found a Moleskine cashier notebook, some scraps, and went to work. It's so simple it's almost silly! All you have to do is arrange your pieces on the cover, use a tiny bit of glue (I used my trusty UHU stick) to secure them, and then sew all over the cover in any pattern you like. Here's my first one, I'm sure there will be more of them in the future!

What do you think? All the fabric came from my stash. I'm in love with the red paisley fabric, it comes from an old skirt my mom wore way back in the 70's. I'm trying to think of more stuff to make with it... Any ideas?


  1. Den här var jättefin! Jag vill oxå göra en sån!

  2. I love the idea! I might have to steal it....It looks like a nice and easy thing to do. I am sure your friend will love it.

  3. Lovely! These come out looking so classy - definitely a great gift.

  4. That's adorable. Your friend should love it. I think my mother had pants like your paisley skirt. I only say that because I believe my sister and I had matching pants to go with hers! You could sew a small bag (out of the paisley fabric perhaps) to put the journal in. Have a great week.
