Updated: Nov 21, 2023

Floral journal cover, flowers and stationery items.

Give your A5 planner, journal or notebook a makeover with a pretty fabric cover.

This lightly padded cover is an easy sewing project and a perfect way to personalise an everyday stationery item.

The padding not only makes this journal cover lovely and soft to hold, but it also provides structure and durability, as well as protection for the book inside.

There are multiple pockets on both the inside and outside to store pens, pencils and notes, and the elastic closure keeps it securely closed.

The features of this journal cover are:

- Multiple pockets for pens and notes

- Elastic closure for a neat finish

- Padded for structure, durability and softness

Its finished dimensions are 17cm x 22cm (6 ¾ inches x 8 ¾ inches) when closed and it will hold a standard 200 page A5 spiral notebook. Minor adjustments can be made during the sewing process so it can accommodate a thicker or thinner notebook.

This is an easy sewing project that's suitable for any skill level. If you have basic sewing skills and know how to use a sewing machine then this pattern is right for you.

Printable pattern pieces are included as well as detailed but easy to follow instructions and plenty of photos to guide you each step of the way.

With Christmas just around the corner, these fabric journal covers would make a unique and personal gift for stationery lovers, writers or those who just love pretty things. Or, if you know of someone who's about to travel, a cover with a blank journal to document their trip would make a wonderful farewell gift. You could even pair it with a matching luggage tag and passport cover for an extra special gift.
