Thankful Notebook and Purse

I have so much to be grateful for. I thought I would share a fun project you can easily make for the Thanksgiving holiday. Here's a look at this Thanksgiving Thankful Notebook and Purse:

Thankgiving craft: Thankful Notebook and Purse by www.jengallacher.com.

To decorate the notebooks: 
 
Decorate some small office notebooks with fall or autumn paper crafting embellishments. I covered my notebooks with scrapbooking paper, rub-ons, and felt embellishments.

To create the Purse:
 
Then cut the top of a piece of felt with pinking scissors. Fold over the felt top (this felt is printed with polka dots), and then with your sewing machine stitch a pocket for a pen or pencil, and a pocket for the notebook. Stitch a ribbon strap to the back of the purse. Stitch buttons to the front of the bag. I also decorated the bag with additional autumn/fall paper crafting items BEFORE stitching it together with my sewing machine. This step is up to you.

Use different colors and patterns of felt for an entirely new look:

These could hang from each dinner guests chair as a part of the Thanksgiving dinner. Pin your favorite photos to remember this craft and share with a friend.
