So I’m a tad addicted to Pinterest, and I have found that I pin a ton of things but don’t actually make them, I decided at the end of December that was going to change. It was time to start making some of the things that I pinned.
I saw a couple of great tutorials for journal covers, quite specifically this one by Rachel from Stitched in Color.
I decided to give this one a go and made 3 journal covers. I was very happy with all of them!
I made this lovely for my wonderful friend Lyanna, I had planned on sending it to her before the end of December, but things happen and it didn’t make it until the middle of January. I know she loved it and I was tickled with how it turned out.
This one I made using Rendezvous – my all time favorite fabric line. For the inside cover I played around with the Hex n More ruler, I hadn’t used the jewel shape before and I really love the scrappy feel of it.
This one I made for my mom. I had to line it because the blue journal was showing through the white fabric. The one thing I was mad at myself for is that the hexies are off center, but I was still learning and figuring the pattern out. At the end of the day I know my mom liked it and didn’t care that it wasn’t perfect.
What have you all been working on?
