I’ve mentioned that I have been keeping track of my points. It really hasn’t clicked yet for me, but I did make this little ditty which I’ve been wanting to share with y’all.
I figure that getting organized can’t hurt and heck, why not make it cute. Maybe it’ll remind me to write things down and look things up instead of popping this and that into my mouth.
My notebook measures 7″ x 16″ when opened with each inside pocket measuring a 7″ square. They are lined to give the pocket a little stiffness. I can fit everything in there including my journal, points calculator and miscellaneous papers passed out at the meetings.
Everything is secured with the infamous FOE which I love in this case. The FOE stretches a little so it’s easily slipped around the notebook to open, but then holds everything in when wrapped to the front. It’s sewn in between the layers on the back panel.
I’ve made several of these and really like Peltex for the interfacing. It’s stiff enough and the fabric adheres nicely without much trouble. I tried Timtex, but it was too hard to sew through and the fabric puckered.
I carry my little notebook with me almost everywhere and love it. Overall, it’s a quick and easy project that has made my calorie counting a little more bearable.
