I did a little embroidery by hand in the mermaids hair to add a small textural element.
The second journal centered around the Goldfish in a Bag print from Heather Ross, using a blue, green, and black color palette.
The cover is made entirely from 1.5" squares, with the exception of the fish. Most of these fabrics came from my scrap bin. These journal covers are really a great way to use up scraps and get the satisfaction of a quick finish!
The inside front cover contained a little surprise!
I can't get enough of that moustache fabric - I think its absolutely hilarious. :)
Both journals were made using a free tutorial from Stitched in Color. These covers are great little gifts since they give you a chance to make something special and exercise a little creativity without overcommitting yourself - you can easily make one in a single evening. And since they fit standard composition notebooks that can be switched out, they can be used over and over again - a bonus if you go through a lot of notebooks!
Thanks for stopping by today. :)
