I Don't Do Minimalist!

I don't do minimalist styling in my home, and it would seem I can't do it in my sewing either!

I have an eclectic taste in fabrics and styles, which is perhaps why this journal cover just didn't feel like me!

Lydia's Journal Cover

This is a birthday present for my daughter's 14 year old, purple loving, friend. I tried to go for a more grown up, less scrappy look, teaming the purples with some delicious soft grey Irish linen.

But it just looks too naked!!  I had to quilt on some lines on the front and back, and even auditioned other buttons to glam it up, but I resisted and stuck with elegant simplicity!

I really like it now that I've sat with it for a while (& the birthday girl loved it too!).  But I don't think I'll become a minimalist any time soon!
