Pocket paper...
I had a thought... a creative thought... and well, wow, that was nice.


My Sis in law, Joy, always carries a little spiral notebook in her purse- not too big, not too small. I have no idea why I decided to cover these little books. I'll blame Darcie because she is the one who started me on journal covers(I'm pretty sure I have made at least 50!)... and those caramel bars(how could she get me craving such yummy goodness- not enough insulin in the world to fix that sugar rush!)...and crocheting(10 doilies doesn't sound like a lot) again. I'm tellin' ya, that girl is dangerous! Poor Darcie, she gets blamed for everything! that's what happens when you're the baby!


But aren't these little notebooks adorable? I dug out an old paper piecing pattern that I was too overwhelmed by the tiny scale to ever actually do. But one little square in a square was do-able. Those tiny pieces are about the width of a match stick. Used some of my crumb stash up. They were a lot of fun to do and I'm thinking...again...that I might make some more. I made four of them, but Joy snagged her's hot off the press, so no picture of her pretty green one. The orange one, well you know it has my name all over it! The red, white and blue one...hmmmmm...

You are so clever!!! These are sooooooo cute! I like to carry a little notebook, I never know when I might get inspired and need to write it down before it flies back out of my head. lol
I like red, white and blue. ;)

Those are lovely! In pre-computer days I took notes for my thesis on a 4x6 notepad in an embossed leather cover. It was so beautiful! Nowadays I always have a little notebook in my purse, and I think it deserves a quilted cover. Wonderful idea you had!
