This will be a quick post about a quick project. It is not even really a “project.” It is more like a “project-ette.” This took minutes to sew, but has been so incredibly useful. I carry this pink notebook almost everywhere I go. It has my doodles and notes and whatnot. But like the book about giving a mouse a cookie, if you give me a notebook, I am going to want a pen…and a pencil. This little pocket is positively brilliant. I can’t take credit for the idea. When I saw these photos, I immediately grabbed some fabric.
Here is what it looks like on the inside:
Had I not been so impatient to finish, I would have altered the instructions to enclose the elastic.
If one found the correct width, ribbon could be substituted for fabric. These would make fabulous little teacher gifts. I say this because every teacher at school who has seen mine has commented on how much he/she would like one. It would also be handy for art students to keep a pencil with their sketch book.
