I only have one project to share at the moment, I have many more in my imagination but unfortunately that can’t sew them up for me!
There are quite a few variations of this design out there, my inspiration was Lindsey’s notebook covers at her blog The Pleated Poppy.
I notice now looking again at her pictures that her ruffle seems to have a raw edge which makes it a lot less bulky. But never mind, this is my first attempt at a book cover with a frilly bit.
I really love this fabric, I don’t know the name of it or any of its particulars but I do know I should have bought a lot more than a fat quarter! Even that back looks good!
I also sewed some cute ribbon into the top seam to make a couple of book marks! I wouldn’t want to lose my place now would I?
Ps. I have used Windows Live Writer to write this post, so there will be hip hip hoorays if it works well! So far it has been too easy!
