Composition Notebook Makeover

Do you like Do-it-Yourself projects?
I do!

I was stumbling on my latest obsession (thanks to my daughter, Tori, for getting me addicted) the website, "" There are millions of DIY websites out there.

I came across a blog where a lady had covered her composition book with fabric. I immediately knew I wanted to do that to my comp book.

and to my sketch book...especially the sketch book...this cover is UGLY!

There are several different ways to cover the book. I went with this tutorial here because it was the quickest. I love the way Vanessa covered her comp book. I plan on making this one, but it'll have to be later this month because I have 3 quilts to finish by the 14th. I must focus on the quilts and quit making small projects.

VoilĂ they are! Pretty cute, huh?!
