Top Secret Notebook Cover

By Liz Barraclough

Despite all the brilliant digital devices, we believe that nothing beats paper and pen for jotting down thoughts and ideas. In the same way as crafting, writing allows us to disconnect from the tech for a while and let the creativity flow. Whether your notebook is for chemistry revision, journaling, or dreaming up a genius knitwear design, Liz Barraclough’s Top Secret Notebook Cover will warn any nosey parkers not to peek! Made from Tissu de Marie Cotton fabric, the A4 sleeve with internal storage pockets can be adapted to other sizes and is easily slipped onto the next book if you’re a prolific scribe!
