Notebook Makeover...

Now that I have my sewing machine set up in my craft room, I've totally been in the mood for making little projects. I'm starting out small and will eventually work my way back up to larger projects some day. Since I made that cute little skirt for Lauren, I've been itching to make something else.

Following Vanessa's tutorial at V & Co. I made a cute cover for these thrifty, but not so cute, composition books.


Don't you think it turned out cute? She uses a ponytail holder for the elastic band that hooks around the button.


I used coordinating, solid fabric for the inside...


and just happened to have a button that matched perfectly...


I'm so happy with it and will feel much better carrying this cute notebook around for jotting down lists and notes. I've been feeling so scattered lately and I find it helps a lot to jot things down instead of having to remember everything.
