This item is for a PDF pattern that includes all the instructions needed to create your very own journal cover.

The finished size of the journal cover is 12¾ inches long and 8½ inches wide (32.5 x 22cm) and will fit most notebooks/diaries A5 in size (8¼ x 6 inches or 21 x 15.5cm).

This is a great way to hide or cover those plain and boring cardboard notebook/diary covers and when you have used up all of the pages simply replace the notebook/diary and re-use the fabric journal cover over and over again.

This journal cover is easy to make and would make a lovely gift for a family member or friend and the beauty of making it yourself is that you can customise it to suit yours, or their, favourite colour scheme. There is not a huge investment in fabric required for this project, and if you already have a stash of fabric, it is a great way to use up all those little scrappy bits.

This pattern includes:
~ a colour photograph
~ a list of materials required to complete the project
~ clear, easy to follow instructions
~ tips and diagrams to help guide you through the process
~ applique template
