I thought that the notebook was pretty as well as practical and asked my friend if I could use her idea and she kindly sent me the dimensions. Perfect timing to use up those yellow scraps and make them into something useful. The first one took me sometime to draft up and work out how to put it together. Here is my proto type
Once I worked out how to put it together I went on to make another two in no time at all.
Here is the outside of all three together
And the inside
I was not sure about yellow and red together - not a choice that I would have made - until I noticed this hibiscus on my way to the clothesline.
You cannot argue with Mother Nature so I was very happy to mix my yellow and red fabrics and love the result. Now all that remains is for me to purchase the A6 notebooks and pens and they can be added to my "giftie" box.
Thanks Cheryll for hosting another fun night.
Linking with Oh Scrap, So Scrappy, Finished on Friday or Not.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
Love the red and yellow together, your little notebooks are great, would make good stocking fillers. :)
Hi Karen these are a great idea ,think I need to make myself one of these,well done my friend xx
A great use for your yellow scraps! x
These are lovely and will make wonderful gifts for friends. I love the yellow and red together.
Clever you! We can learn a lot from nature.
I like yellow and red together too..the covers look wonderful, well done.
Very nice color combination :)
They look great...I love the pen pocket on the fronts.
I do love your note book covers....wonderful idea and yes you can't fault Mother Nature's colour palette xx
It is great to have paper and pen handy in your bag. I have several of these, received as gifts and as table favors at Guild functions. Love the pocket on the outside of yours!
Oh My, where do you live that you would encounter a hibiscus on the way to the clothesline?!?!? How amazing would that be. All that aside, your notebook covers are lovely, especially the yellow and red one!
Your little notepads look great and so handy
A clever idea and a nice little gift, might have to go on my 'to do' list.
Great projects - and yes - yellow and red are a cheerful combination!
Your little notebooks are great. I have a similarly covered A5 one that I use all the time. And I love red and yellow together, I am glad that hybiscus was there to prompt you! :)
What a great idea Karen - a lovely wee gift - very useful. I sometimes think that too about colour combinations and then see it in nature! A good night's sewing :-)
These look wonderful! Love the idea of a pen pocket :-)
