I recently made this fabric necklace using the techniques in this tutorial.
If you love crafty stuff and haven’t heard of Sister Diane and her blog, CraftyPod, then you’re in for a treat. It’s a veritable treasure trove of crafty ideas and information.
From craft tutorials and podcasts on her personal blog, CraftyPod, to insightful discussions on the philosophical underpinnings of craft and community on the blog she co-founded, Make and Meaning, this is one gal who just gives and gives to the blogosphere. She’s also eminently lovely.
Here’s another of her tutorials on my to-do list: fabric covered notebooks. For me, this is one of those projects that has the magic trifecta of qualities that make it a near-perfect craft: it’s simple, fast and the end result is spectacular.
Sophia starts school next year and I’m tipping she may be the only kid with fabric on her books rather than Disney Princess stickers. She’s going to love that. I may relent and allow one princess sticker. Just one, mind. On the inside cover.
