You may have seen our Father’s Day notebook covers earlier in the year, but this time we have super sized them into A4 ready for all those school books. How impressed will the kids be with a cool fabric notebook to show off in September? Not only will they protect the covers, but they’ll also look super stylish and make a perfect gift, personalised to their taste.

Why not use a fabric that relates to the subject the notebook is for? We have some fabulous music themed fabrics from Nutex and the Venom Black fabric from the Beguiled collection would be perfect for an art journal!

  1. I’m an enthusiastic newcomer to sewing/patchwork and love your website, tutorials and beautiful fabrics. BUT there’s no way I could make any of your sewing projects in the times suggested! Can you be a little more realistic on timings for people like me ⁉️😊. Thanks!

    1. Hi Christina! These projects definitely aren’t meant to be a race, we just take the average time from the in house seam-stars we have. We don’t want to set a challenge for you! Enjoy making it in your own time, it’s just an approximate guide 🙂
