Your tutorial is fantastic!  It was very easy to follow.  I've been wanting to cover my daughter's school agenda, so after I found this tutorial, I stopped at Walmart and bought a 4 pack of fat quarters, and made the cover this evening.  I found I ended up making it a bit too small, even after taking measurements (must have sewed farther than the 1/4 inch), but I just cut down the journal's front and back cover to make it fit.  I also used the same fabric that was on the outside to make the button loop and pencil holder (she's not allowed to use a pen yet).  Oh yeah, and I machine embroidered the label and fused it on the front. My daughter loves it, and so do I!  Thanks so much for sharing this tutorial!

Added:  By the way, this is a spiral book, and I had no problems!  I made another agenda cover for my son, included the photo below.  Fabric and button from Walmart, readjusted the measurements by 1/2" and it fit perfectly.

This is a wonderful tutorial, I had no problem making a professional looking bag, first try!  Thanks so much for posting it!  I never took a photo of the first one I made, which I gave to a student (I teach college classes) in a secret Santa swap at Christmas, but I just made another one for myself from an old pair of blue jeans and some fabric I picked up at a yard sale last summer.  I think it turned out great and it is very handy for all those little items in my purse that normally get lost.  I didn't really get the ends of the zipper perfect, but I'm happy with them.  They turned out better on my first one.  This one was a little harder to sew because of the thickness of the jeans.  I also didn't slip stitch the inside, just got lazy and topstitched.  I machine embroidered the jean fabric, by the way.

I also tried to copy your (queenofdiy's) lanyard purse, with a little modification.  I wanted a little pouch to keep tooth flossers/tooth picks in, and this did the trick, thanks for posting photos of that (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182820.msg1904172#msg1904172), it was very inspirational! Thanks again for the fabulous tutorial!
