Make a cute and functional journal cover to protect your fabric swatch book using this SEWING PATTERN.

I use this cover and a notebook to carry swatches of fabric with me and it is VERY helpful! It is invaluable having actual pieces of fabric to look at when you are looking for a color match, complementary fabric, or otherwise trying to make a fabric buying decision.

The two pockets of the fabric cover slide over the notebook cover to hold it conveniently in place. The fabric cover pockets can then be used to store coupons, bits of ribbon, thread, yarn, and even buttons. In my swatchbook, a post-it note acts as a bookmark, and reminds me of my current shopping list.

This pattern includes pieces to make a notebook cover in two sizes. It is designed to fit Moleskine Cahier notebooks in either the small (pocket) or large size. Other soft cover notebooks with the same measurements can also be used:

• Small cover fits notebooks 3.5" wide x 5.5" high (9 x 14cm)
• Large cover fits notebooks 5.25" wide x 8.25" high (13 x 21cm)

This pattern is a paper & ink friendly 9-pages. There are 4-pages of step-by-step text instructions with color photos + 5-pages of black & white pattern pages. Pattern pieces are actual size and no resizing is necessary.

Click the green "add to cart" button in the upper right column, approve your payment, and your pattern will be available for INSTANT DOWNLOAD once your payment is processed.

Thanks for visiting! Please add my shop to your favorites so you can stop by again.
