Sew a sweet case for your iPad, Extra Large Soft Cover Moleskine, or other composition size notebook.
There are two pouches--one large one for your gadget or notebook, and a second pleated pouch on the front. The pleated pouch has a built in pen slip pocket. The pleats give it the ability to open up a bit wider so it is easy to reach inside, and it also holds a lot of stuff!
It has an "interoffice memo" style closure using two buttons and ribbon. This is a cute way to show off some big buttons (the bigger the better!) and also allows for maximum expandability.
I'm interested in all sorts of arts and crafts, but these days I stick to sewing, with the occasional outburst of embroidery. Someday I'd like to learn to knit and/or crochet, but for now I'm just about being buried alive in fabric! Adding more supplies is probably not a good idea...
