Pretty Purple

Hi all,

Most of you will probably already know that my favourite colour is….


And this week I had an excuse to pull out my stash of purples and buy a special piece to make a custom order notebook. Yes I will do custom orders!


I had such fun playing and deciding what to do although it had to be a bit like one I had already made…but boy isn’t it pretty?!


I love these little heart buttons and they matched the fabric perfectly!


I saw this print at the local PWS after I had been given the order specs and knew I had to get some…so pretty!


Have I said “Pretty” too much? LOL

While I had the purples out I did a cover for my sewing class binder too…


The feature block has been lying around on my cutting table for probably a year (no kidding) so I finally used it. Can you see the glaring fault in my quilting? I will fix that tomorrow!


I’m hoping the pockets will hold some of my junk…


Is that enough prettiness for one day? What can I say….I love purple!

Awesome! I love your note book cover. Purple is a great color. You've done a great job with the inside pockets.

Fantastic! I think you should teach how to make these. I think a lot of people would love to do a workshop. Something that can be finished in a few hours; so satisfying.

I love the focal fabric in the first pic - what is it? I must say, I love purple, too!

Just gorgeous! Are the pen loops made of ribbon? I have always wanted to do some but struggled with elastic and getting it to sit flat, but never thought to use ribbon!

Purple really is such a nice color. Great job here.
