Have you ever made a gift that you wanted to keep? I had a really hard time taking this one to the post office. I sewed this linen and leather padfolio for Heather from The Sewing Loft for a gift exchange. She's a pen and paper gal and this padfolio sewing pattern was just the thing for a legal pad, pen and some business cards. An all around great notepad cover pattern.
The pattern does not include instructions for making leather corners. Here's what to do:
- Cut leather triangles.
- Sew leather on front corners.
*can I just note that for some reason my stitches are SO crooked on this project and is no reflection of the pattern? It's actually a bit embarrassing. Don't look too close.
I need to make one of these padfolios for me now. I love computers and smart phones but there's just something about writing down notes on paper.
Are you more of a paper or a computer note taker?
