I found Lara Cameron's reversible journal cover tutorial and decided to give it a go. Amazingly I still had motivation to sew after finishing the apron. This tutorial was very easy to follow, and even though I couldn't visualise how it works in my head (have I mentioned I have terrible spatial skills?), I followed the instructions as they are and when I turned it the right way out, hey presto, I had a reversible journal cover! Nifty! The whole project, from measuring the journal and cutting out the pieces to stitching up the hole at the end, took about 40 mins. And the finished product looks good too.
