Journal for Betsy

She got her birthday present, so I get to show it off here!  I made a journal cover for Andreas' mom.  Originally, the fabric was to be a piece I'd handwoven, but the maid found it on the ironing board (with the beige square already on it) and decided it needed washing.  When it came out of the washer, it wasn't suitable for the journal anymore, having frayed quite a bit and gotten too small.  So, I came up with a plan B!  The green is dupioni silk, and the square is a little square I stitched up a while back to make into an ornament.  The journal cover directions are here
Here's the inside.  The butterfly fabric is also the inner lining, which can be reversed and become the outer shell.

The back.
