Sketchbook Cover

Friday, December 11, 2009

This is a special gift for a special friend.  She is an amazing artist and I wanted to make her something she can use for her drawings, whether for clients or just for her.  I fell in love with this fabric as I think it suits her perfectly.  It's her favourite colour, she loves to garden, and she has an affinity for bees.

I used the pattern in The New Handmade: Simple Sewing for Contemporary Style for the sketchbook cover.  I made some minor adjustments based on the size of the book that I chose.  I'm really pleased with how it turned out and I know my friend will love it!

I do love it! Thank you so much! I was thinking of brining it along to the local coffee shop for a latte and a doodle this afternoon.

You're so talented!
