I covered this A5 notebook with antique linen which I embellished with some lovely toile, cross stitch, applique, embroidery, trim and buttons. The cross stitch papttern came from my gorgeous French book called 'Liberty et point de croix' by Helene Le Berre. The cover can be removed so it can be washed. These notebooks are great to use as journals, ideas books or even as recipe books. I'm making one for myself in which I intend to write recipes I've collected which are flying around on pieces of paper.
