Custom Notebooks

By: Lisa from a Spoonful of Sugar

This sweet guest project comes to us from Lisa of A Spoonful of Sugar. Customise a plain notebook with a fabric monogram or image – getting organised has never been so stylish!

Custom Heart Embellished Notebook


  • Plain cahier style notebook such as Moleskine cahier
  • Small pieces of fabric
  • Appliqué film such as Vliesofix or Wonder Under
  • Matching cotton thread

Moleskin Notebooks for Project


Choose a monogram or heart to place on the front of your notebook. If using a monogram, use your computer to select the font of your choice. Enlarge it so it is the right size to fit your notebook, and print in out. If using a heart or other simple design, draw it up on a piece of paper. Cut out your image or letter.


Custom Heart Notebook 3

Place your image right side down on the paper backing of your appliqué film. Trace around the image on the appliqué film and cut it out leaving a margin of approx 1 cm or ½ inch around it.

Iron the appliqué film onto the wrong side of your fabric, and then cut the fabric letter or image out.

Custom Heart Notebook 4




Peel off the paper backing on the image. Press the image onto the front of your notebook using a warm iron. Only iron for a few seconds until the fabric has adhered. Too much heat will cause the notebook cover to warp.

Custom Heart Notebook 5

Using a buttonhole stitch or zigzag stitch, sew around the outline of the shape using your sewing machine.

Custom Heart Notebook 6

Tie some raffia or ribbon around the spine to finish it off.

Custom Heart Notebook 7

Teamed with some cute stationery, these notebooks make a great gift for a teen.

Absolutely adorable!!! I make a similar project but start with Composition Books- the kind you can pick up cheaply when it is "Back To School" Time. Jennia
