DIY Notebook Covers – Thank you gifts

It’s that time of year in the UK – the end of the school academic year. The kids are filling up with goodwill and the pressure is on to come up with thank you gifts. This year I decided to revisit my blog post 10 Teacher Gifts for teachers, made with fabric, hunting through for a gender neutral, quick project!!

I followed this tutorial from Stitch by Stitch. Having set up a mini production line I am pleased with the end results. This project is fab for using up fabric you already have.

You stitch the fabrics wrong side together, then turn right side out.

I particularly like the idea of using bondaweb to glue the two edges together, rather than using slip stitch.
