I sew the fabric book cover jacket as gifts for my two sisters after my holiday trip to Sydney, Australia.
Concept Inspiration : The main focus of the fabric has to reflect the country of visit. The Qantas Flight uniform really inspired me to hunt for aboriginal-art designed fabric (which I could not find). In the end I settled for Australian-themed designed fabric. I bought a meter of this fabric at AUD$22 from a Quilt shop in Leura, Blue Mountains.
Design emphasis : Personalised the gift with names. In this instance I had used iron-on letters to form the name; concept inspired by army name-badge.
Hope you like the idea and it can really save you some money too as gift items at tourist attraction are expensive. The blank notebook cost SDG$3.50 each.
