Fabric cover notebooks

My son was recently invited to a birthday party for 2 girls turning 14. What do you give 14 year old girls? Fabric covered notebooks! Of course they must be personalized, and have something that interest them on the cover. These girls, like my son, belong to the Anime Club at school. I used this as my inspiration. The girls loved them (according to my son). These are reversible and were easy to make from fabric fat quarters.


I have been sewing up a storm! A new quilt shop opened up in my neighborhood (lucky me!).It is called The Quilt Cupboard. I ventured in 2 months ago and I was hooked! I signed up for a machine quilting class. I had never pieced a quilt by machine before, only by hand. Since then I have completed 4 quilt tops. One is waiting in the wings while I hand quilt one, embellish anther with silk embroidery, and machine quilt one. I also have a Christmas table topper started (it will be a gift for a friend ...shhh!). I am having so much fun! I will post pictures of my work, although it is still in progress. It will be fun to later on look back at the process. Hopefully it won't take me too long to complete them.
