Fabric Journal Covers

How was your Thanksgiving? Gary and I enjoyed lots of food and family time at his brother's house. I made the coleslaw salad  with the crunchy ramen noodles. It was a direct request from Gar's brother. He loves that stuff! I was disappointed that there wasn't any pumpkin pie for dessert but I managed to eat some French Silk pie instead haha. I still want pumpkin pie though...

My friend Kristie shared this Journal Cover Tutorial from Bloom and Blossom Blog at our last guild sew day. Look at the cute one she made! After seeing hers, I couldn't wait to give it a try! First, I bought the notebooks. These measure 7.5" x 9.75"

The tutorial gives instructions on how to measure your fabric for any sized journal. For this size, I cut as follows:
Outer Fabric and Batting: 10.5" x 23"
Lining Fabric: 10.5" x 15"
Pencil Pocket, 2 pieces: 2" x 10.5"
                                          2" x 6.25"
Elastic: .5" x 10.5"
