I’ve been toying with this idea for a little bit – I always wanted a pretty notebook to at school and then later at work. Many of my co-workers carried the standard leather binders, that while ok, elegant in their way weren’t fun or pretty. I’m a little addicted to fun and pretty, especially pretty. So I came up with this idea, the notebook cover is about 1/4″ thick because inside is a little recycled cardboard.
I used some old wool, some cotton scraps, a few old buttons and lace. Then there is a pocket in the inside to keep the notebook in place. Cause then I can keep my cover but switch out notepads as needed.
