An exchange student from Brazil will soon arrive at my friend, Rose's home for the upcoming school semester. I thought it would be nice to give her a journal to record her thoughts and adventures while in the United States.
I was able to find out Bela's favorite color is pink. I purchased a pink journal at Barnes and Noble over the weekend. The inside cover is also pink and the pages have pink lines. I then began to wrestle with fabric ideas. I finally decided to use a brown and pink polka dot with a contrasting band. I think most young girls like dots. I then began to search the web for a tutorial to cover the journal. I found I found a blog called Bloom and Blossom. The tutorial is very easy and clearly written. I am very please with the results.
I hope she likes it.
