    Crafty notebook covers

    Take some inspiration from these crafty notebook covers and recycle those fabric scraps you were saving for a special project using the instructions from the following projects.  Not only are these a great idea for notebooks, but can also be designed for your favorite book or scrapbook . . . how about a beautiful cover for your bible?  

    They would make very thoughtful, inexpensive gifts!

    Check out this awesome journal cover from Bloom!

    Becky at Patchwork Posse has designed some fun vinyl notebook covers.  
    Check out the different design ideas and a tutorial on how to make them . . . click here.

    This button embellished notebook cover designed by Diane Gilleland is too cute!

    Petal Pillow Tutorial

    I'm seeing fabric flowers everywhere!

    My favorite was on a cute little clutch bag . . . the flower, made of the same material as the bag, was slightly bigger than the bag.  I plan on making one, but I didn't have a tutorial for the type of flower that was on that bag . . . the flower on this pillow comes close.  It seems easy enough to scale it down . . . we'll see!

    I'm also loving these Petal Pillows . . . click here for the tutorial.

    Funky Recycled Necklace

    This necklace is so cool!

    I will definitely try to make this as well as a bracelet and earrings to match when I get my jewelry making area set up again.

    This project comes from Aubree of  Yellow Blackbird Blog who was inspired by a tutorial from Aunt Peaches.  Very cool concept using recycled plastic cups!

    Here is a photo of Aunt Peaches' project:

    Same concept with two distinctively different looks.

    I must try this technique!
