I’ve been making notebook covers for my various courses, using Rachel’s tutorial at Stitched in Color.
It turns out that this pattern is perfect for my long-cut quarter-yard NYC prints from the City Quilter.
Here’s a fuzzy instagram picture of the first one:
The next one will be black and white using the skyscraper print from City Quilter, in the same design as this one, and the third will be burgundy and yellow/gold, to match the colors of the Plantagenet kings. That one will be all red on the outside except for a thin vertical band of yellow at the edges, and the inside flaps will be yellow, with a pocket the right size for index cards.
I tweaked the measurements for the tutorial, because I’m using 8 1/2×10″ spiral-bound notebooks instead of composition books. I cut my cover to 12.75″x32.5″ because the notebooks are a little bit larger, and followed the tutorial otherwise, while adapting the pocket flaps to be the right depth for my notebooks. It’s a great tutorial!
