Dream Catchers >> DIY Sketchbook Cover

When shopping around thrift stores I feel like you're never quite sure how much you will (or will not) use a found object.  Choosing the right fabric takes on adventure in itself, not to mention actually figuring out how to use the fabric.  Finding two lace curtain panels at one of my favorite thrifty haunts was like hitting upon gold.  I have used it for this dress and now two sketchbook covers.  I think I may have just enough for another project that has been sitting on my sewing back burner.  

I found the tutorial for how to make these here.  There is something very nice about having things all covered up nicely and ready to go.  I can't help but look around and think what should be covered up next.
