These fabric covers for steno pads make great gifts for teachers, friends, co-workers… really anyone who might like to jot down notes in style.

They can be made totally reversible. They have a handy spot on the cover for a pen or pencil and an elastic closure.

I think these would make great little gifts when you just need a little something.  They are quick and easy!

It is an immediate download so you can have your pattern and be sewing right away! Yes, you could figure out how to make these, but if you don’t want to waste the time figuring out all of the measurements simply download three pages of detailed instructions. If you are interested visit the shop!

*3/8 yard each  of two different fabrics will make four covers

*You can find steno pads at Wal-Mart for just under a $1.00
