The beauty and strength of a denim notebook cover

 

Did you manage to finish up the Denim Organizer from yesterday? It’s a great accessory for a  quilting studio. You can however fit anything you want in those deep pockets.

Today’s denim idea is quite unique. We’re using denim fabric to cover a notebook, but see how elegant this is? The pocket is so handy for placing writing tools, business cards, or cell phone?

Designed by Linda Turner Griepentrog, the Denim Book Cover is further enhanced by the stitching and thread used. It’s fun to find an embellished pocket and repurpose it. Adding topstitching with Coats Jeans Thread accents the pocket.

The threads used for this project are:

Coats Dual Duty XP All-purpose thread in coordinating color

and

Coats Jeans thread

It’s in making the small things that we get the confidence to try the greater projects, try out this denim book cover. Whether you’re covering a binder, a book, or a composition notebook, recycled denim is a great way to go. Click on the photo below to download the full pattern.

Join me tomorrow for yet another denim recycling project.
