Here is a super simple quick and easy useful gift. These little notebooks made perfect party favors for my daughter’s party!
All you need is
one piece of oil cloth 5″ x 8″ (outside)
a coordinating 5″ x 8″ piece (lining)
2 pieces 2 1/2″ X 5″ for inside pockets for the notebook cover to slip in
one 1 1/2″ X 3″ piece for the pencil pocket on the front
Sew pocket on front. Place it just shy of 3/4″ up from the bottom edge and over just over an 1 1/2″ from the side edge. Just eyeball where it works for you.
Sandwich outside piece right side face down, then lining face up, and pocket pieces on each end. Fasten with mini clothespins.
Sew all the way around the edge, removing clips as you sew along. I sew on the top side.
The inside looks like this.
Get a mini composition notebook (found at Wal-Mart) and a mini pencil. I found my pencils at the dollar store. A golf pencil would work also.
Slip notebook into cover.
There you have one cute little cover!
So easy to whip up a bunch in no time!
