Book of Memories

Capture little details that you can share with your child someday. Turn a loose-leaf binder into a sumptuous scrapbook to hold everything from congratulatory cards to baby socks to a precious lock from her first haircut.

What you need:

  • Sewing machine
  • Three-ring binder
  • 1/2 yard ultrasuede
  • Matching thread
  • Scissors
  • Scalloped scissors
  • Ruler
  • Straight pins
  • Ribbon
  • Cameo backing
  • Rubber stamp for initial
  • Stamp pad
  • Decorative paper
  • Colored card stock
  • Photo pockets
  • Glue stick
  • Fabric glue

To make:

  1. Measure enough ultrasuede to cover exterior and interior of the binder.
  2. Sew along the top and bottom edges, creating a book jacket. Slide binder inside, smoothing edges under the interior spine.
  3. Decorate the front of the book with ribbon, a cameo charm, or trinkets of your own.
  4. For the pages, cut sheets and dividers from decorative paper or card stock.
  5. Glue photo pockets onto some pages, or adhere items directly onto pages.
