A Comp Book Cover For Me

06 August

Now that I’ve shared how to make a day planner from a composition book, it’s time to make a cover for it!  There are lots of online tutorials out there to choose from.  But I want some special features, so I designed my own.  An elasticized penholder, ribbon bookmarks, and internal pocket panels make this project great.

Here are the fabric pieces I chose for my cover, mostly Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern Collection.

And here’s the completed inside cover.  For one of the ribbon strands, I sewed the selvage strips together.  Sew appropriate.

And yep, my comp book day planner fits in there nicely.  Perfect.  Making it was the easy and fun.  Now the hard part – writing the pattern.  My husband actually wants me to make him one!
