These covers are lined and the notebook front and back are inserted into the pocket. From a half yard of faux leather you willl be able to cut at least 4 covers. If you are using cotton fabric that is 44" wide you will be able to cut four covers (cover only, not the lining) out of a half-yard of fabric. You'll need 1/3 yard for the lining and pockets for each cover for either a cotton cover or a faux leather cover. Use a 1/4" seam allowance throughout. A size 90/14 needle worked fine for me.
