These gorgeous fabrics by A Spark of Happiness were purchased back in 2016 from Fiona's Fabrics in Woodbridge. I'd already used some of these fabrics when I made a Sew Together Bag in 2016, and then a case for my Samsung tablet last year. I'd recently used them for making a case for my laptop, and had just enough scraps left over to make a notebook cover to match. I used the ByAnnie The Write Stuff pattern and adjusted the size to fit an A5 notebook. I made the cover with a piece of ByAnnie Soft and Stable and used a thinner piece of wadding for the outer zippered pocket. The zipper tape as always is number 5 continuous zipper tape from Zipper Station and I chose the same bright green colour zipper that I'd used for both the tablet case and laptop case. A decorative fabric pull is attached to the zipper tab...
...inside the case there are several pockets - the notebook slips into the larger pockets and there a few other smaller pockets too. Again, it would be easy to add a vinyl or mesh pocket too if needed. Another nice feature is the fabric bookmark, which is stitched into the top seam of the cover...
...a fabric tab is stitched onto the back of the cover, folds over and fastens on the front. Rather than use a magnet for this as suggested in the original instructions, I used an extra large snap fastener purchased from Empress Mills and attached a vintage button on the front of the tab as decoration...
...there's plenty of room for the notebook in it's quilted cover to be stored inside my laptop case too. My home office bits and bobs all look very smart stored in these co-ordinating covers and cases!
