I'm still making these folders with the notebook inside. Since I cleaned out all the 7 x 9 Spiral notebooks from the Dollar Store, I'd better use them all.
Here is my latest, and as happened with all the previous ones, I still could not find the "right" button. Finally, I realized that I don't like buttons - too traditional. Wish I had some clever "things". I used emb. threads to make a bunch of fuzzies, instead of a button. The required button doesn't really DO anything - it's just for detail, so if I had anything else clever, that would do as well. mmm leather, macrame, hardware, but nothing comes to mind. The inside is black with white polka dots, and I quilted this on the diagonal, with straight lines about 2 inches apart. Quilting it myself is MUCH better than any pre-quilted fabrics I could find, and MUCH less expensive as well.
