Take Note!



The lovely (and very talented and patient) Lisa (Museum) had the brilliant idea of getting us all making fabric covered notebooks at Sew n Crow. It's a fab way of using up small pieces of fabric and so much nicer to use than a boring old plain notebook. The results were fantastic and all so individual.




I loved Amy's gorgeous gingham design - she used the same fabric to make her bias binding and I think it works brilliantly. Check out the beautiful wooden button too!


And Sam's gorgeous fabric with contrasting interior! She found just the right colour ribbon at HH to use as a tie!




And here's my own (not quite finished attempt). Unsurprisingly with a scandi feel. A leftover piece of fabric from my bathroom blind! There's plans for a ribbon tie - but I need to find just the right colour, and of course, a button. A nice mother of pearl button I am thinking!



Pat's gorgeous farmyard fabric with gingham bias binding - lovely.




And.....am I allowed to say this? My favourite of all, Michelle's carefully thought out and beautifully executed design, made as a present for her God-daughter.





Michelle even added a tinkly bell and ribbon bookmark and one of HH's motif's. Just beautiful. If the conversations are anything to go by, there will be lots more of these being made over the coming months for presents.




It was a fab way to spend an evening - productive, creative and not forgetting the icing on the cake - literally - coffee and walnut cake and raspberry and white chocolate brownies - mmmmm. Washed down with liberal helpings of tea.
