Fabric notepad cover


When I saw this I knew I had to had to had to make one.

So I used my favorite fabric (funny story... I have been looking for it non-stop.I even found someone on Etsy who made a makeup pouch out of the exact same fabric. I convo'd her immediately, but it turns out she doesn't know anything about the fabric other than where she got it from 6 months or so ago - Joann's....).

I also used some linen and a fabric covered button.


I also used some of my favorite pink and white polka dot fabric. The inside pockets are a great addition since they allow me to carry my business cards and Ooh Leela!'s flyers. I chose to add only a couple of pockets (unlike the Cottage Mama), because more pockets would have made it too hard for my sewing machine to handle.



I took it to work the other day and all of my colleagues asked me where I got it. I (very proudly) said: I made it (huge smile)....

It took me about 2 1/2 hrs. to make it. I really like how it turned out. What do you think?

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
