but I have one more last-minute idea. I made these for my eleven-year-old niece but they would be a good hostess gift too.I bought a pack of moleskin notebooks at Barnes & Noble and used the zig zag stitch on my machine. And by my machine I mean the decades-old machine I borrowed from the office of our apartment complex. I didn't use a special needle I just stitched slowly. I can't remember which book I got the idea from but it is genius. Super easy and adaptable to almost anyone.
