Take advantage of back-to-school sales to score some inexpensive composition books, and then sew up some pretty fabric covers for them! I’ve got a free pattern and tutorial over on my personal blog, Orange Bettie. The covers have a flap that wraps to the front and snap shut, and on the inside an elastic strap that will hold your place in your book. No having to flip through the notebook to find a blank page! There’s also a couple of pockets in the back that will hold a pen and perhaps a small pad of paper.
