Denim Notelet Folio

A very talented friend of mine had the genius idea of downsizing my A5 notebook cover pattern into a Notelet Folio, the perfect little case for housing notelets and stamps!

Here are 3 she made as gifts earlier this year (I'm happy to report I was one of the lucky recipients!!):

I love having a handy supply of notecards, when I need to encourage someone or include a message in a parcel!

And like @sewmesarah, I thought they would make great little gifts for friends.

So one afternoon I had a play with some of my smaller denim and vintage scraps, experimenting with an idea I've wanted to try for a while.

I knew that trying to 'piece' smaller scraps of denim to make this little cover would create unwanted bulk through the creation of seams.

So instead I used a more traditional Boro technique with my pieces of fabric, layering and overlapping them before machine quilting them all onto a piece of heavy sew-in interfacing. A little spray of 505 basting spray on the back of each piece secured them all for the quilting stage.

5" x 6.75" closed

I love the organic texture and rustic look you get from the denim using this technique. Including a few vintage scraps in the cover and flaps adds colour and interest.

On the inside I used quilting cotton for the stamp pocket and lining. There's even a place for your pen! A cute vintage button & elastic loop closure complete the case!

The notecards and stamps fit perfectly inside!

I'm so blessed to have talented friends I can pinch great ideas from!!

Of course the patchwork & quilting possibilities for these sweet covers are endless! I'm definitely going to 'play' a bit more with other Folio cover ideas!!

Watch this space!

Happy sewing!
