Blue bookwraps

What was I thinking when I made the blue "thing" these are cut from? Less is more, when it comes to the shiny stuff! These fit an A6 spiral notebook - and even the black-covered hardback A6 sketchbook. Not knowing how thick the book will be, I made the loops on the bias for a bit of stretch. The larger the button, the more secure the closure -

 These, also A6 size, remain unfinished. I shall be leaving the inside "rough" and adding a pocket at the square end; they'll close with a ribbon -
It's been a pleasure to doodle with thread ... making a fantasia of handstitch...
