Notebook covers - another school dress upcycle - Day 31 - Use What You've Got

Upcycling more of my girls old school dresses yesterday. 
I made them a couple of notebook covers. These covers slip over a regular exercise book measuring about 22.5 x 17.5cm (9 x 7")

The simple 5 steps in 15 minutes tutorial for making these notebook covers is here.

For the covers I made yesterday I used fabric from the dresses for the outside, and co-ordinating fabric for the inside. I also added each of my girls initials on the outside of the covers using the co-ordinating fabric, just to make them a little more special!

And I still have some more of the dresses to use up - so come back tomorrow again to see what else I've made by upcycling these dresses!


I love comments and try to respond to them all. Thanks for taking the time !
