Time to Quilt the Mead Notebooks.....

Brand new Mead Composition Notebooks are irresistible don't you think? So why not quilt covers for them?

I’ve been meaning to do that since a friend showed me an applique pattern she purchased making them out of blunt cut wool and hand blanket stitching.

I improvised and made a pattern traced onto a paper bag and printed labels on Printed Treasures fabric sheets, then machine quilted them.

Why are those Printed Treasure sheets so expensive now? Has anyone tried just running fabric through their printer ironed on to freezer paper? I keep thinking there is a chemical setting process after printing that I just don't want to deal with. Maybe they will set with a hot iron but that's a project for another day.

On to Iphone covers....I am so behind in my gift making this year.....

I love the idea of covers for these notebooks -- is it a pattern you would be willing to share?
