EASY instructions in a PDF pattern file for a Journal Cover. You can cover any album or notebook with this DIY tutorial.

Cover any album or notebook with these easy instructions. The PDF tutorial is a step by step guide to making a journal cover!

This pattern teaches you how to make a fabric cover for a memo pad, dollar store photo album, scrapbook, notebook, sketchbook – almost anything! Use up your scrap fabrics to make your stuff fun and make wonderful gifts!!

To make the cover, you will need:
~ a fat quarter (18” x 22”) of fabric for a journal up to 6” x 8”, ½ yard for anything bigger
~ a small piece of contrasting fabric, if desired
~ ½ yard of fusible interfacing* (1/2 yard for a larger journal)
*I use heavyweight (Pellon Décor Bond) iron-on interfacing.


You will download the pdf file after your payment is processed. You will receive an email from Etsy with download instructions!

You will need Adobe Reader to open the pattern. This is available for free download on

The pattern may not be duplicated in any manner unless for your personal use. You may use this pattern to make and sell journals at venues such as Etsy or craft fairs, as long as you are a small (one or two person) business. Please credit Sid’s In Stitches as the designer in your listing and promotional materials. Copyright for the design is retained by me.

You are purchasing a pdf sewing pattern for the journal cover, not the journal cover itself!

I have been designing needlework patterns for 28 years. Your pattern is a super simple 6-page, thorough instruction with lots of color photos that has been tested by beginning sewers! Fabric is cut with a rotary cutter (there are no pattern pieces) or by measurement.
