I finally put this linen to use. And I actually did it in the way I had originally envisioned.
I have never had much exposure to linen, only a dress that was hardly worn because I had to iron it, every time.
I had been seeing more and more linen out in blogland with crafts and was falling in love with the look of it. I had to have some for myself.
I am loving it so much. The wrinkles that bothered me so much with my dress are not an issue for some reason. I almost like it a little better this way, it feels more loved and homey or something.
Anyway I am very happy how this notebook cover turned out. I didn’t even have to piece the cotton strip. I had some scraps from this quilt that were already sewn together. I may have to make another soon.
