A couple of weeks ago, Caroline sent me some of her new Chalk & Paint fabrics to sew with. I knew exactly what I wanted to make with them!
My girls are drawn to Caroline’s fun fabric designs. The Happy Home fabrics I chose for the zipper pouches we made with my daughter’s friends were a big hit, so I knew they would love these too. And I’ve been working on this new pattern, a notebook cover, for a couple of months. One of my test versions was claimed by my paper and pencil loving boy, so the girls have been patiently waiting for their own.
I think the Chalk & Paint fabrics are the perfect match for this creative project. They have really sweet, Spring-y colors and a fun handmade look. My personal favorite is the large scale floral print. The handwritten words are also fun for a project like this, plus the messages echo and encourage the creative thinking I like to use to inspire my children.
The notebook cover pattern will be available in 2 sizes. The larger size fits a composition notebook and the smaller size fits a moleskin notebook or sketchbook. I added lots of pockets on the inside for all of their little things, and added a strap with a stylish snap closure. I’ll be sending it out for testing next week, so hopefully it will be finished and my shop soon!
