The directions for the notebook cover and the CD holder can be found in One-Yard Wonders by RebeccaYaker and Patricia Hoskins. Their directions are fairly easy to understand. I added a side to the CD holder (thank you Sue in Texas) so that it would fit into the notebook rings. There is room for 5 CDs on the front and 5 more on the backside of the holder. I like both of the patterns so much that I will have another cover and CD holder finished this weekend. I am using them partially finished for a Software Sampler class and then they will be completed. Both are patterns that will be made into gifts for friends.
