I made up some of these fun notebooks to have on hand for hostess gifts and other last minute gifts of appreciation. I had received one myself years ago and still use it to organize all my computer passwords! 1. Lay notebook of choice open on a table and cut oilcloth with pinking shears so that it is 3/8” bigger along the top and bottom and 3” wider on the sides. 2. Fold sides in to make flaps and tape into place to secure while sewing. 3. Sew along top and bottom of oilcloth, securing the flaps into place. 4. Insert notebook and TaDaa! Tip: If you wish to put embellishments on the front of the notebook, sew them into place first before sewing. I’ve also made these with cotton fabric. The procedure is the same, except first double fold and sew the fabric around the perimeter to prevent fraying. Happy Holidays!
