Coupon Notebook Cover

Remember the coupon notebook I made a while back?  It is a great system, but carrying a baby, a notebook, my car keys, and a baby toy in to the grocery store was just too much, so I made a  cover for the notebook out of an old burlap coffee sack and some linen.  Here's the front complete with a pocket:
And the back.  I did my best to show off that awesome coffee bean flower that was printed on the sack.  Isn't it fun!?
I combined some ideas from the tutorial that I found here along with a couple of my own thoughts on how to make it work for what I needed. 
I'm really pleased with how it turned out, so I hope to do my own tutorial soon.

Thanks! The burlap was surprisingly easy to work with! It is very forgiving if you make a mistake.
