There are only 3 more projects still to come in our Summer Sewing series and I must say that I will be sad to see it end. Everyone has shared such unique and creative projects. Today we have Monica from It’s Just Sewing sharing a free tutorial to create a Fabric Binder Cover (you can also use it as a book cover). It’s the perfect project to transition from summer to back to school.
First I have to say that I adore the fabric that she’s used for this binder. It’s from Heather Ross’ latest collection and I’ve got a healty supply of it in my fabric stash. In the tutorial Monica walks you step by step through the process of creating the binder cover, she even shows you how to make your own pattern so that you can adapt the size to any book or binder that you like.
She also uses a very clever construction process. It’s kinda like quilt as you go, but with a twist. Make sure that you stop by her blog and check it out!!

Also, I just wanted to thank everyone for the advice and good wishes on the vertigo last week. I’m happy to report that it’s nearly gone, I’m just completely wiped out from being sick. I’m sure you all can relate to that feeling… the one where you walk up the stairs then feel like you need to take a nap?
I’ll be sharing photos and stories from our trip as a part of my Saturday Snapshots series. It will start this weekend and run a few weeks. For those of you that are new, I usually share more personal stories on Saturdays, so I can post more crafty/DIY stuff during the week.
Labor Day is next weekend, and with it is the official “end” of summer. For those of you that are regular readers, I’ll be transitioning from my usual twice weekly posting to three times a week. I’ve got TONS of fun stuff to share with you for the upcoming Holidays, so don’t be surprised when you start hearing from me a little bit more than you’re used to.
I was able to get “some” sewing done this summer, but not too much. We were in the throws of a home restoration project due to our flood in the spring. I’m curious, did you guys get much accomplished this summer? What was your favorite project?
