Mojo and I made this writing kit early in the fall. It seemed like a good idea to post it now for anyone looking for an easy-to-make present for the holidays.
Mojo sewed the journal case with a bit of help. She hammered on the snaps and set up the machine to embroider her friend’s name. Once the fabric was embroidered, we used it to cover a standard size composition book and made a matching mini book. We used heat-n-bond to adhere the fabric to the notebooks. It was really that simple. The ends don’t fray and the cover stays securely on. The ribbons were attached with hot-glue.
We have since done a whole batch of mini books to slip gift cards into for presents. If only I could remember the special place I stashed them so I wouldn’t lose them. Hmmmm……maybe it’s time for me to break out some more heat-n-bond and have another go at it.
