How to spend more time and money and think you got a bargain

h, yes, I am really good at this!

So we've gone to a really expensive store in the mall today, and while the kid was playing I spotted some nice notebooks. It might have been the price but I really didn't like any enough to buy. Ok, I kind of liked some, but they all had some playboy bunny, emo chick ot tanga (oh, yeah) on the cover. Or But I really needed one. So, well, I did it.

Bought the cheapest notebook, about 2$, horrible cover

spent 1/2 hour planning, cutting, sewing

some Ikea and some gorgeous Alexander Henry fabric

and now it's just waiting some inspiration for another quilt.

Hmm... now it looks like a bargain again :))))

Ah, don't be very impressed by my calculations, they were, well... wrong :D. Of course, one (bad) thing led to another (good thing), and my notebook has 2 different sides, so that I can easyly find the begining and end.

The front has more bubbles

The back has more sticks.

  1. very beautiful, you would never know that under the cover the notebook is so unattractive!

  2. Oh yes, horrible. I did have choice nd this was...the nicest :))))

  3. Diana, I love it! Maybe consider doing a tutorial about it?
