The more I make these samples the more ideas I get for using them. Right now I’m working on a cute cover for a collection of recipes. Also in the works is a cover that’s perfect for a knitting or crochet diary. Keep records of what you made – type of yarn – needles used, and so on.
Here are a couple more that are suitable for just about any topic. One of the benefits of these particular covers is that when your composition book is full you can slip it out and replace it with a brand new one.
The cover shown above was made by Betsy Farwell and features a collage of nettiing with colorful ribbons and an unique toggle closure.
I made this cover from a colorful batik and embellished it with a collage of cheesecloth, lace, silk pod, and decorative hand and machine stitching.
