Fabric Traveler's Notebook #Westcott

Happy Friday! I'm sharing my first fabric traveler's notebook. So excited to share!
I found the perfect Nightmare Before Christmas fabric and I paired it with black stripes! Eeek!  Here's a quick look:

I used Westcott's Titanium Rotary Cutter, the best for cutting multiple layers of fabric. I used a quilting ruler to cut straight lines.  

The finished traveler's notebook measures 8.5" x 5.5". I first washed and pressed the fabric. I created a pattern so I have it for future traveler's notebooks. I used the rotary cutter to cut all of the fabric, including the fuse material.

I wasn't sure if I was going to include side pockets in the inside cover, but I had the fabric and so I included them. Before sewing them I added a lightweight interfacing for stability.

Here is my completed Jack Skellington traveler's notebook!

I'm so glad I decided on the inside pockets!

It holds 2 inserts for now.

I'm so happy how it turned out! I will be making more and will share a more detailed tutorial with complete measurements.
Thank you for visiting and enjoy your Halloween weekend!

"And since I am dead, I can take off my head
To recite Shakespearean quotations
No animal nor man can scream like I can
With the fury of my recitations"
