Made on Monday

 The Sweetwater girls (designers of Mama Said Sew, Reunion, Hometown -- you know the ones) also have  a club called "Label Crew Club."  Each month, members receive a unique label and instructions for a project.  When I saw their "Daybook" labels for 2012, I knew they would make the perfect Christmas gifts.  So I ordered a batch of the labels personalized with "2013" rather than "2012" and made one or two notebook covers using Nancy Zieman's tablet cover notions and instructions. They looked great, but what a pain!

Luckily, I found "Stitched in Color's" tutorial for notebook covers.  So much easier, and they actually work better with the composition notebooks I wanted to cover.

Rachel pieced her  own "made" fabric for the covers.  Since it's already January 7, I wanted to get some finished ASAP, so mine are made of just one fabric.

I even added my "My Aunt Martha Made It" labels.They read "PeaceLoveandHappiness" on the reverse.

I have plenty more labels, so I'll be making more of these cute (and easy!) notebook covers.

Thanks, Rachel, for a clever tutorial!
