I recently entered a swap where the theme was to make a material notebook cover for our secret partners. Mine has been received by my partner in America so I can reveal it now. (Before the wail goes up from the Derby Division, yours is on its way).
Wendy gave me a list of likes and dislikes to work from. I was told bright colours and solids were ok and the fabric needed to be washable. Also embroidery would be fab. The notebook was needed to take to work and be big enough to write ideas down in and maybe sketch. Must be able to be latched closed. No baticks and definitely no grays. Overall must be a cheerful theme.
So here is what I made. A red linen cover with embroidered butterflies (cut from the linning material) and closed shut with a metal fastner hidden behind a matching button.
Inside of cover showing the colourful butterfly material that I chose to compliment the red.
Finally the inside front cover showing the pen holder made from an embroidered butterfly.
I'm pleased to say that Wendy liked her cover and that it ticked all the boxes for her.
