We're all about sharing ideas.

Studio 15 is not just a business for us it's a way of life, making, sharing, learning, inspiring each other with new ideas and possibilities. We know that all you crafters and artists are always on the lookout for new approaches and techniques so with that in mind here's a little sugar to sweeten your day!


We love Moleskin notebooks, a good old fashioned notebook in your pocket to scribble down those ideas that pop into your head so when we came across this idea from we thought we'd move the idea right along the line to you.

 You will need: a kraft brown moleskin notebook of any size, a piece of fabric, a glue stick and a pair of scissors.

Start by cutting down your fabric to a size that is small enough to fit on your notebook. We cut a 2.5″ x 5″ rectangle for the pocket sized book and 3″ x 8″ rectangle for the larger book. Glue your fabric to the front cover of your notebook. Start stitching along the edge of the fabric, leaving a small seam. Leaving your needle in the down position, turn your notebook 90 degrees and continue these steps until all four sides are stitched. Knot the ends and trim any excess threads.

It’s possible you won’t be able to stop yourself from sewing fabric to paper…it’s that addicting. The possibilities are endless and you really can’t go wrong with this project. We love the raw edges but of course, you can fold your edges under before sewing. You can also try experimenting with patchwork, using more than one fabric.

Have fun making these simple individual little books and while away a few hours exploring the fab blog at
