Ellie notebook

I was lucky enough to spot some tiny jeans and dungarees on my daughter's charity shop pile the other day. 3 year old Rose has grown out of them.
Snip, snip....loads of possibilities, but started simple and made a notebook using a pocket.

With the aid of iron on Vilene and a few fat quarters, I layered up colours and stitched it together. The structure is created by ironing the vilene to cereal packet cardboard.
I cut some mixed media paper for the inside and filled the pocket with crayons etc.
To embellish the pocket, I stamped the elephant from PA Friends, from The Cat's Meow selection onto tissue, painted with fresco China, and glued down with Matte Medium.
Happy with my little notebook which measures 6" square.
I shall enter this into the PA challenge, Fabric!
