I had this fabric in my scrap bin, left over from a previous sewing project. I thought it would make a nice little tween journal. It's a 5.5" x 7.5" journal I binded together using my Zutter Bind-It-All (affliate link).
I started putting it together before Christmas, but my sewing machine broke and I had to wait until this week when my new sewing machine arrived to finish the felt bag.
Included in this little set is a felt bag with flap, journal, and a ribbon bookmark.
The felt bag is about 8" W x 9" L with a Velcro strap. Made from two pieces of felt, front and back a different shade of blue and matching fabric to the journal for the straps.
Inside the journal I put in a few "surprise" scrapbook pages amongst blank white sketchbook pages.
I placed it in the shop. My oldest daughter loved the design and asked me to make her one.
Here's one last photo of the bag and book together:
I just got finished making a few cookbooks inspired from some fabric I picked up last month. Now that I've got my sewing machine, I'm planning on using the left over fabric from the covers and creating matching oven mitts. I'm looking forward to sharing them with you and posting them in the shop.
