This week’s I Made it Myself post is from Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts. The pattern is called “Scrapbooks,” but they were a gift for my brother-in-law. I’m not sure “scrapbook” is the right positioning for a guy gift, so I’m calling them journals.


Anyway, these were super easy and fun. I practiced first on some card stock because I didn’t want to sacrifice any of the Moleskines. I did them in one night. There were a lot of ends to trim, but other than that, I totally love them. In fact, now I want to make some for myself! I have a feeling lots of friends and family will be getting these for gifts in the coming year.

    Those look great! I have this project filed away in my brain as a good use of scraps from my favorite fabrics that are too small for anything else but I can’t seem to throw away because I love them.

    Those look awesome! Like they came right out of that book! Very cool–when I saw that picture in Last Minute Gifts I thought I would make them for our kids when they go to school (with the rainbow fabric used in the book)–but I definitely like them for me, too!
