I like to keep track of my stitching starts and finishes throughout the year. Last year I used the Needlework Press Book of Days, but this year I decided to try a different approach. I saw a 2022 Planner in The Range in Greenock and thought it would be ideal. (It was not too expensive either!) However it was very plain - not really my style so ... I decided to decorate it.
I used some vintage papers and stickers and just glued them to the inside cover. This what the planner looked like before -
I then added a pretty pocket to the front and back inside covers - useful for keeping receipts, notes etc. Now it is looking much better, in my opinion.
I'm hoping to make a fabric cover for the front - I've got some lovely fabric in mind for that and hope to get it done later this week. I've made a fabric book cover before which you can see here.
I love the way it has turned out. Much more "me"!
Oh, that looks lovely Liz! I can't wait to see it with the fabric cover you've got in mind! xxx
It is very nice and a good idea.
