Back To School Binder Cover for Elsie

August 24, 2016

Elsie'snotebook2016My 12 year old still likes a new binder cover made by me.  YAY!  She is finally over the lunch bag but still gets excited for this 🙂  I used the Notebook Slipcover Sewing Pattern of course.  On sale right now for only $5!

We used the same binder from last year and picked out these very pretty new fabrics from Blend Fabrics.  The fabric line is called Season of Love.  Blend fabrics are always a pleasure to work with- their quality is so nice!

So be prepared!
