A couple of members of our local craft group showed the rest of us how to make a slip cover for a small notebook with an appearance similar to leather. We used felt and tissue paper with Bondaweb - I didn't really like the colours I used at the workshop so made another piece when I came home using some black tissue paper and I do prefer this one. This had just a basic decoration added of a few small flowers cut out from the surplus 'faux leather' after I'd measured the notebook and cut to size. The braid along the edges was made on the sewing machine because I didn't really have anything suitable for the edging. These would make handy small gifts or something to sell for fundraising maybe, especially if the local Pound Shop has any suitable little books available.
