Just a little thing...
I was at Staples this morning. Wasting some time with Husband while waiting for the sewing machine store to open. I was retrieving my machine because apparently I have worn out the automatic thread cutter on my Janome Horizon 7700. Who knew? Apparently I use it a lot. Anyway. The part is on order and until it comes in, I have to cut threads the old fashioned way. Such a problem.
Back to Staples. I noticed these cute little Composition notebooks. Oh my goodness. So darn cute at only 4.5" by 3.25". I bought some. They were 2 for a dollar. I bought 6 and think I will have to get more. I wanted to make little covers, of course! The first attempt was an epic fail. Too small and too bulky. I regrouped and tried again and this time I figured out a good plan and my test cover was a success!
How cute is this? Just some linen scraps and some scrap scraps. Now that I have figured out the sizing, I can have some with fancy scraps!
