Fabric journal covers

I had fun making this fabric journal cover from the February 2008 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine that E lent to me. Thank's E! It's a nice short project - took me about 2 hours to pick out the material and put it together. At first I wasn't sure about the instructions but then I read them slowly and went step by step. The instructions kinda confused me because I've seen versions of this on the internet and they used a different method. You can check out Lara's blog for another way to make these covers, in fact, I might try Lara's so that I can compare the two methods.


It's my quilting buddy's birthday soon so this will make a nice present, don't you think? No peeking Jean!!!!!!

I'm glad you tried it. I've been thinking about it. So cute. I love the little animated kitty on your side board, too.

Very nice! What a great idea I may have to dig my magazine out and give it a whirl.
