Hello! :) This kinda goes along with the past post on crocheting. I have this binder (an idea given me by a friend) that I store all my patterns that I use in. It has sections for each of the kinds of things I make: wash clothes, doilies, blankets, booties, hats, and shawls.
So It looked kinda plain and has this plastic slip cover thing on it. I thought it would be easy to make something and slip it in. Yup, I was right. Very easy. I cut some paper to fit and added another patterned paper overtop. I added some lace, a doily ( I know a crochet one would have been better...hindsight.) and some chipboard pieces that I had in my collection.
For the back I used some canvas paper as the base and then some matching paper overtop. It looked too plain so I put some more lace in there.
For the sidebar I put a double layer of paper and when I find just the right letterings, I'll put CROCHET over the smaller tab.
Do you have a crochet binder? I love that I can go there and pull out those patterns that I have tried and work for me. I use it like a recipe book. I write little notes on some of the patterns to say how they worked for me...or not.
Thank you for stopping in! I hope and pray you have a wonderful day! Perhaps playing with some yarn.
