Writing in Style: ITH Journal Covers

There are so many reasons to write your own book. These classy journal covers can be stitched up in no time!

This Mini Notebook Organizer from Kreations by Kara has a hip, designer look. It does require a large hoop (200 x 360) but the benefits are bountiful.

A zippered pocket section, six credit card slots, and elastic bands to secure the cover and a pen give you everything you need to keep your life in order. Cover pockets fit a 5×7 notebook so it is perfect for everyday bags and totes. Just choose classic fabrics and your friends will want to know where you shop.

Another good choice is the Quilted Journal Cover from Omas Place. This cover fits A5 journals up to 6 x 8.5 inches. The set includes the journal cover, a matching bookmark, and a cover for a mini composition book that fits perfectly into the back pocket of the journal.

The journal is quilted, fully lined, and entirely done in the hoop. No additional hand or machine sewing is required. Pick out a pretty one-inch font and personalize for an extra special gift.

It may be hard to believe that these Pocket Journals from Stitch Soup are not manufactured by a big-name company.

Completed notebooks measure 5 inches tall by 3.5 wide, fitting 3.25 x 4.5 inch mini-composition books. Although the designs have 7-9 color stops, they stitch up quickly in one color.

Stitch on vinyl, leather, pigskin, faux leather, cork, and similar no-fray synthetic fabrics. Covers can be completed entirely in one hooping in less than 45 minutes.

Then, the fun begins! Embellish them with beads, buttons, and hot-fix crystals or use decorative brads during the stitching process, hiding the prongs between layers.

Your download incudes instructions to make a 50-sheet notebook, a mini-album, and a template to include a story or poem.

All of these covers can be used for shopping lists, an embroidery journal, and precious keepsakes for family. Start writing down some of the funny things that your kids and grands say. There are so many books you can write!
