Getting my sew on

Well, that's not strictly true! I didn't get my sew on last night, I am just finally getting round to showing you the diary cover that I made for my friend and wedding planner Marie.

I am quite pleased with it, only issue being I took the inside pics in a hurry, so they are a) a bit bleached out and b) I hadn't trimmed off all of the extra threads either!



The fabric is from Ikea and I've had it for a while, I bought it to make tote bags with, but I just couldn't bring myself to part with it! The ribbon and buttons are from my stash.

The tutorial I used was very straightforward and I even modified the pockets and the fastening to make it a bit more useful for Marie.

Try it out, it's fun and takes about an hour from start to finish.
