This pattern is particularly perfect to me... it's simple, functional, and beautiful. The pattern piece was derived (with permission) from a graphic by Lecien Fabrics. The graphic, pattern piece, and brief written instructions are included in this .pdf pattern. See my blog post for a complete step by step instructions.
