The other day while on a rather long drive, Halley was unusually quiet and asking me how to spell random words and how to write certain letters. We were in my husband's car and I mistakenly assumed that she was writing on her Aquadoodle. Unfortunately she had fished his mileage ledger from the seat back and wrote on pretty much every page. Mind you, at the end of each month the log has to be filled out meticulously and then copied in order to turn in and get approved. Oops.So part of me was so proud of her desire to write and draw in the car, but the other part was freaking out about how this would affect this and the next dozen month's mileage. I decided to pick up a handful of composition books and make a girly princess cover for them. That way she can still draw away without causing trauma to important papers.
I just sewed a simple cover from a 12 x 24 piece of fabric. I thought about making a tutorial, but you can find the basics of this construction right here.
This is apparently a drawing of Lucy. I think it is funny how much hair she gave her, considering how close to bald she really is.
I am going to make one up for a lucky winner who leaves me a comment on this post. Just let me know if it is for a girl, a boy or for yourself (grown-ups can doodle too!). I will pick something fun from my fabric stash and pass on the composition book love. I will draw a winner on Tuesday morning. Comment away!
