Another day, another handmade Christmas gift!
These journals with pieced covers are the perfect personalized gift without breaking the bank. I made mine with help from a tutorial found at Stitched in Color. The great thing about these is you can piece your fabric into any pattern you want! Once you've pieced enough together to cover the notebook, simply trim it down, and finish it off. I also added an initial appliqué to personalize my covers. If you do this, just be careful not to make my same mistake -- don't stitch your appliqué on and accidentally sew the cover closed!
