A cover for my new diary

>> Friday, 7 January 2011

The new diary that my hubby bought for me, is very dear to me.  I've had a brief flick through the whole thing and marvelled at some of the drawings that are featured.  There's so many wonderful crafters out there, and each day features a shop, website or blog to visit to see more of each crafter's work.  The diary came uncovered and although you can download printable paper covers for it, I decided to sew a cover with pockets (naturally) to hold all the papers that usually stick out of the back of my filofax! 

I've used a soft cotton blue check fleece as the basic cover.  To be honest, if I was doing this again I'd either line it or go for a sturdier material.  It's way too flimsy so I've had to link the edges inside to keep it all together!  The pockets are from a lovely Christmas Rose patterned fabric, edged in coloured cotton stitching and a mini flower embellishment with little "made with love" heart linked to it.  A chocolate brown and sky blue dotty ribbon along the binding finishes it all off. 

Here it is:

That is really pretty AND the pocket is so practical too!
