Okay...my son has a roll of unstretched primed canvas...
and I cut a chunk off so that I could
with a refillable 'journal'.
It needs some 'fine-tuning' but I think
it might just work out.
I used a 5" x 8" pad for my prototype...cut the canvas to size
and painted that up.
Then I made a 'pocket' of sorts...to slip the cardboard
back in and stabilize the pad.

(I think I'd prefer twine..but we'll see)...to
secure the pad to the top of the
After a couple coats of varnish...I'm all set to use
this for my
'to do' lists.
The front is a cute little creeper under a whimsical tree.
The back is a hedgehog pulling a heart on a string...
underneath which I've put my name...
I'm hoping my sewing machine can handle the canvas...
I can have a batch of them ready to go
in a week or two...
