These Covers Make Journals Into Wonderful Gifts!

Create a lovely and personalized journal with an easy patchwork cover. Make one or both of the covers for yourself, or create several to give. The covers go together quickly and turn blank journals into special gifts.

Honey bun strips (1 1/2″ wide) speed up construction. Several covers can be made from one honey bun. Or, dig into your stash and put together a lovely combination of fabrics and cut them to size.

Journal Covers Tutorial

The covers are designed for an A5 art diary, which is 6.25″ wide, and 8.25″ long. Adjust the dimensions to fit a differently sized journal.

The covers are designed by Roslyn Mirrington of Bloom.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
