Make a Fauxdori Cover with a Placemat!

So, we all know that the pretty leather covers for the Midori traveler’s notebooks can be quite pricey, and not everyone is able to make their own. Because of this, I’m constantly on the search for cheaper alternatives and wanted to try using a placemat from Dollar Tree because they were sturdy but still not too thick. And it worked perfectly! I found this lovely pattern (and also found another I can’t wait to use), and so far it seems like it’s been holding up. I had someone comment on my video to let me know that she has actually used standard, thicker placemats for this before and it worked fine as well!
