Fashionit Turns Composition Books into Stylish Accessories

I’ve always loved composition books, but you have to admit that they are kind of dull looking on their own. To make this humble school supply staple more exciting, Fashionit offers a wide range of fabric covers in trendy floral, paisley, animal print, or glitter designs.

The inside of the covers have a pocket for storing small items and three pen loops. There is also a velcro closure.

In the long run, this would be a great way to save money on school supplies for your daughter. The covers are reusable and washable, so you can buy a huge stack of composition notebooks for 25 cents each during the back to school sales and just keep adding a new notebook whenever she runs out of paper instead of spending $5 to $10 on fancy decorative notebooks each time.

If she gets tired of the cover’s design, covers from the Double Chic line can be reversed it to get a new print. She can also add an accessory like a bow or faux flower to mix it up a bit.

In addition to the composition book covers, Fashionit also has covers for three-ring binders and spiral notebooks. She can either get all matching prints or mix and match the different styles.

Don’t have a daughter? Many of the prints work well for grown-ups too! The Double Chic Urban Flowers Black/Vintage Dots Purple composition book cover I was sent as a sample is sophisticated enough that I’ve been carrying it around to use for jotting down to-do lists and blog post ideas.

The cover is great protection when I’m at the park with my son. I can write while he’s playing and not have to worry about dirt or juice getting all over my notebook.

    My daughter would love this. I like that it is a cover so it can be used multiple times.


    These are really cute. I don’t have a daughter but I could see buying these for myself.
