Step One: I ironed the entire 12x12 piece of fabric onto the Therm O Web heatnBond Iron on Adhesive Ultra Hold backing. This backing is available at all major craft and fabric stores and contains wonderful directions for applying .
Step Two: I selected the printed area I wanted to be on the front of the notebook. Then I opened up the notebook, laid it flat and, using a pencil, I lightly traced a quarter of an inch to half an inch (choice) beyond the edges of the notebook. It is helpful to weigh down the notebook so it is flat.
Because the edges of the fabric are already 'pinked', I used my pinking sheers to cut on the lines.
THE BACK inside cover of many moleskin notebooks has a pocket and an extra slit should be made.
Step Five: adding the touches. I inked then edges of the notebook with a charcoal ink pad and I used the Them O Bond on a length of patterned ribbon leaving a space for the pencil. I ironed this onto and around the cover and provided not only a pencil holder for the notebook but a tie as well. The final touch was adding the metal corners.
