DIY Notebook Covers – Thank you gifts

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!!

Thank you gifts - DIY notebook covers

 

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.

This fits my remit re speed!!

Shirt notebook cover

I decided to raid the fabric stash for a former shirt to create a cover with a front pockets for the male teacher.

These are perfect! People appreciate gifts you have made yourself much more. They have a feeling of added value. Im not great with diy so I purchase customized thank you gifts gifts. Which arnt actually that expensive if you purchase online.

I should try these for my boys. They journal every night before bed and I'm sure they would love a custom cover!
