Faux Leather Notebook Covers

Recently I held a workshop for one of my ladies and her two charming granddaughters, who were visiting with Grandma for 
the half term holidays.  It was such an enjoyable afternoon 
spend in  delightful, keen and enthusiastic company.

of paint for extra texture

The three finished works of art
After some careful cutting out, strengthening with iron on stiffening and finally some machine sewing, you can see their amazing faux leather notebook covers. I am sure you 
will see why all three were extremely proud and delighted with their beautiful creations.


  1. Wow what an amazing workshop - and how grown up and totally absorbed do those young ladies look. I bet that they were absolutely thrilled to bits with their book covers and I am sure that you will be seeing them again on their next stay with their grandmother.

    Fabulous textures and colours there - they really do look like leather don't they

  2. Well that certainly looks as if a great afternoon was had by all with incredible results, all three of those covers just look fabulous!!

  3. The book covers are AMAZING! I can tell from your photos that a great time was had by all. I'm just jealous that I can't be there for your classes!! You have the most wonderful and creative ideas!
