A Simple DIY Book Cover

Does anyone else have a zillion journals stockpiled in a corner of their basement because you just can’t resist the pretty paper inside?

Guilty as charged.

Why don’t I use them you ask?

Because I don’t like the covers!

Add it to my list of weird Rachel-isms, but I just can’t seem to part with these journals that I don’t want to be seen with.

Today, I solve the problem;

Let me introduce you to Noted. My Notebook Cover Sewing Pattern!

The cute, simple, and QUICK project is sure to make you look dapper wherever you and your journal, planner, notebook, sketchbook, even binder may find yourselves!

I’m a sucker for a one-size-fits-all pattern, and this notebook cover is just that! Simple cutting instructions ensure that you’ll get a perfect fit for your (and removable) cover. Whether it’s your Quilter’s Planner (with a massive ring), a skinny mini Moleskine, a bleh 3-ring binder—whatever you got, this pattern covers them all!

I made two versions – one in quilting cotton and a decorative one in (you guessed it!) cork!

What’s better? You can use all your favorite or odd fabrics for the cover. Look at this gorgeous cork version I’ve created (be sure to check out my post on how to fudge the pattern a bit when working with materials like cork before getting started).

In addition to great fabrics, you can use all sorts of great decorative techniques on these DIY covers! I used some great decorative stitches along with my BERNINA Circular Embroidery Attachment to jazz up my cork version. But now a Sashiko version is on my to-do list as well!

You can snag this pattern for just $3 today! Get them while they are hot!

Note: This is currently an online-only pattern, so it only comes as an instant download. Happy sewing!
