I love planners and tend to have more than one going at a time. Yes, I know they say that's not the best way to stay organized, but it "works" for me.
I ordered the Quilter's Planner which came with a nice tutorial for a cover by Stephanie and Amanda. If you search the hashtag #zippynotebookcover on Instagram, you will see a variety of amazing covers!
The best feature of the cover is the zipper pocket on top for holding pens, small rulers and other tools. The only zipper I had on hand long enough was a plain white one, but the beautiful Carkai and Architextures fabric by Carolyn Friedlander more than makes up for that!
I even had a blingy teal elastic strip in my sewing supplies. The elastic can be wrapped around the planner to hold it closed when not in use. The picture above is a better picture of how pretty the elastic looks even though this is not how it is used.
There are pockets on the inside flaps as well as a business card holder. I love the "measuring tape" ribbon that serves as a bookmark.
This counts as my first finish of 2016 and I am happily linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts!
Hope your 2016 is off to a wonderful start! Thanks for stopping by!
