Hi there, Lydell here with your today sharing my last project I created using The Crafter’s Workshop Stencils. I chose this sweet little leaf design, and thought it needed to be a cut out.
I will quickly share how I made the little notebook to go in my Midori Travelers Journal
I printed out some graph paper on my printer and added a cover piece, then stitched down the centre on my sewing machine to make the booklet. I measured the correct width to fit my midori planner and trimmed it down with a craft knife and metal ruler to get the cuts straight.
Now for the cover, This is where my TCW Stencils come in. I used them in various places inside this notebook, but today I will just share how I did the cover.
I traced the design with a super fine pencil keeping as tight into the actual design as I could.
I just used a craft knife, and cut out all the centre sections first so the cut design stayed secure while I cut the outside shape.
Its so pretty! Love this design!!!
Next I poked holes all around the shape ready for sewing.
I found some pretty variegated green thread and doubled the strand and started just stitching all around.
The little book is for the Challenge group Called “ListersGottaList” I will share some of the inside pages completes next (such fun creating these lists of memories….but that’s another story!!!
Hope you will give this cute yet easy project idea a try!
Thanks for stopping in
