- you've lost lots of weight
- you have a much loved skirt that no longer fits
- you want something to remind you of how far you've come
That was the dilemma one of my friends had. So she gave the skirt to me to see if I could make something out of it - oh maybe a journal cover.
Well, it just so happened that I could!
I added a sunflower coloured lining because I didn't want anything to detract from the skirt fabric.
The cover fits the journal that it's supposed to with wiggle room built in!
And because it's a journal cover to celebrate with and remember, I topstitched all around with gold thread. I think it looks really pretty when it catches the light!
Because the skirt was made of panels I cut out the fabric along one of the panel joins (which you can just see here on the spine of the cover).
I do hope she likes it!
