Low-tech Laptops

...for longhand logging!

 Its nearly a year since the wonderful stabstitch workshop and here is my dream finally in production!

 Some of these pieces of felt have become felty front covered notebooks

A few of the goodies from Beckys giveaway being put to good use!

Back covers of wrapping paper - one of Lu Summers beautiful designs...

stuffed with secret cereal box strengtheners securing sturdiness!

There are little individual surprises in each one applying to the recipient!

Hopefully there will be more in production soon - I have located some better equipment to create the holes...and I have ideas for the remnants and offcuts!
Helen has a comprehensive photo tutorial and lots of other ideas if you'd like to have a stab at a notebook!

They look beautiful Ali! I love the idea of using felt as a front cover, and I love the colours you've used :)

Ali, these are wonderful, I love them, and the idea of adding personal touches is a great idea! I'm going to have a look at the tutorial...I tried making a journal cover using some my felt but it was a disaster and the felt has now been re-used! Liz xx
