I have a serious thing for fabric. Just love it. So when recently found out that there is something called Fabric Mod Podge I knew I wanted to try it.
My cookbook is an old photo album binder that I just put 4×6 recipe cards in. Works great but it was in serious need of a makeover because it was old and nasty. So I grabbed some cute fabric, a bottle of fabric mod podge and a foam brush and in 20 minutes I had a brand new cookbook:

Fabric Covered Notebook Tutorial:
1 Piece of fabric that is about 1-2 inches larger than your notebook on each side
1 smaller piece of fabric for the inner covers

Now spread a thin layer of the mod podge on the front of the binder:
Do this on the front and the back and voila! You have a beautiful new fabric covered binder:
