It’s the last day of school for 2008 tomorrow! And they have two days of teachers strike for the first two days ‘back’ in 2009!
This is what we gave Dian’s teacher as a thank you gift/Christmas present.
The bookmark was woven by Dian (with a little help from me), using a weaving loom that I have had since I was her age!
I made the notebook cover to fit a standard A5 notebook, so it can be easily replaced when the first book is used. There’s a zipper pocket for pens and the inside cover is done with contrasting fabric. A strip of elastic is attached to the back to close the notebook.
This was quite fun to make, the hardest part was working out how to actually make it!
