Another ByAnnie pattern and another gift! As you know, I enjoy mkaking journal covers, and have made several for myself and friends. However this one is on a whole new level, with a zippered front pocket, an inside pocket and a bookmark. This pattern is The Write Stuff and was purchased on line from Sew Hot - they have a great selection of ByAnnie products and patterns. I've used a combination of batik fabrics and Moda grunge by Basic Grey for this journal cover, all bought a couple of years ago at Sew and So's in Bungay (they have a super selection of batiks there) and teamed it up with a gorgeous variagated KingTut quilting thread, also bought from Sew and So's...
...this quilted journal cover has a zippered pocket on the front (I've added a fabric zipper pull) and a slip pocket on the inside of the back cover...
...I used a button sew-on magnet for the tab closure and added a vintage button from my huge collection in a matching colour...
...The pattern has instructions for making the journal in 3 different sizes, however it can easily be adapted to make other sizes. This is the large size and I've used an A4 sized spiral bound notebook...
...this was a gift for my daughter - she loves teals and turquoises and batiks, so I knew I couldn't go wrong with these fabrics. And there are plenty of pages for her to fill it up with her hopes and dreams!
