Cha Cha Challenge finish

This week's challenge is a journal cover or wallet so using (and modifing) a Moda Bake Shop pattern I came up with this!

I accidentally sewed my braid the wrong way but I don't care, I like it. I used the blue tonal for my inner pockets and instead of using binding I sewed the the backing and the front together like I would a purse and turned it afterwards, thus avoiding the evil binding. Now had I measured properly before cutting this would have fit perfectly, but of course I didn't so it is a bit small. But I'll just get a slightly smaller binder, which won't be hard since I was using my jumbo binder measurements.

 I have to say I ADORE this line, and I absolutely can't wait for Sweetwater's next line, Pure, to come out in August.

I love your cover! The rick rack is a great touch. Hope you can find a smaller binder. I made some covers for notebooks and they were a tad small, so I just cut the cover of the notebook down a bit. It worked!
