sshhhh... don't tell it's a pressie

a little zippered pouch for important wee things like coffee cards etc and a fabric covered notebook. 

The notebook was made using the tutorial over on Clare's blog.  

I used lite steam a seam for the notebook which was great to use, because it is slightly tacky so I could stick it on, readjust and then iron it (you will understand if you read the tutorial).  A note though - making these may become addictive!

I will be making more of these, but next time I think I will add 2 cm or even 2.5 cms as my notebook was a bit bigger and I felt it could do with a little more fold over. 

The fabric is Heather Ross's Roses from the Far Far Away 2 range.

P.S. if you need a tutorial for making zippered pouches Lisa has a good one over on her blog Big Little.
