Pimp my Moleskines
I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned it before but, even though I am not a trained designer myself, I manage a small team of graphic designers in my "real" job. They've been working their butts off lately in preparation for a big event we have coming up in a few weeks, so I decided yesterday to make something for them to show my appreciation.
They are the ones who first introduced me to Moleskines, so I couldn't think of anything more appropriate than some fabric covered ones! I found the tutorial over on Wise Craft. They were super easy and a great use of scrap fabrics. All you need is some double-sided fusible bond. A GREAT Christmas gift idea, I think!
Also, for all you Amy Butler fans out there, Kelly from I Have A Notion reached out to me this weekend to let me know about a fun contest she has going on over at her blog. YOU could be the designer of the name badge worn by Amy and her whole team at the upcoming quilt market in Houston! Besides the awesome bragging rights, if your design is chosen you will also win some of Amy's patterns, stationary, and other goodies.
You can find all the details here:
Amy Butler Tag Challenge
Best wishes for a great week ahead!
