Notebook Covers

I wanted to make some gifts for Mother's Day, and since we like to keep it simple, I chose these notebook covers.

I used Lori Holt's tutorial that she did for The covers came together quickly and turned out great.  Each has a small pocket on the front for pens and pencils, and two large pockets on the inside covers for notes and such, and fits an inexpensive standard spiral notebook. 

After the cutting was done, each took about 1 to 1 1/2 hours to complete.  Later, I found some cute coordinating pens at Walmart and put one in each notebook (no pic of those).  And of course, I made one for myself, because I'm a mom too.  : )  I used some adorable Pam Kitty fabric for mine.

I think I'll keep sewing & quilting notes in it.  Like my long list of works-in-progress.
