My most prized possession as a little girl was a stationery book Mom made me out of two placemats. It folded open like a 3-fold brochure, and each panel held a smattering of random, blank, hand-me-down stationery, birthday cards and pen-pal letters I’d received in my little life. When I decided to create a handmade gift for Tori’s high school graduation (I used to babysit her! Am I old now?), I immediately thought of this little stationery book. I hope it will be perfect for writing Thank You notes on the fly for all the care packages we’ll all send her.
I based measurements on my sewing journal, making sure to have pockets for a little address book, pen, and notecards. If you sew, it’s probably pretty easy to see how I made it. If you’re new to sewing and want a pattern, just let me know. I’ll sew up a new one and take notes just for you!
Oh … I stamped, embossed, & personalized little notecards for her, too:
