Linen Cookbook Cover

This beautiful set of fabrics, won in a giveaway, and linen was to be a three ring notebook cover to keep my patterns and any ideas I found on blogs. I first appliqued the butterfly upside down and then cut the linen an eighth of an inch too short to fit the notebook. Opps! Measure twice, cut once.  After a bit of adjusting, it happily covers my favorite cookbook, Williams-Sonoma Essentials of Baking. My favorite is the blueberry cheesecake.

  5. Almost forgot.

    I used Park City Girl's tutorial on Bible covers and modified it to fit a larger notebook.

    I will try this again and share the measurements for the 3-ring someday soon.
