I made this from Amy Butler's In Stitches book.  The pattern is easy to do, but you have to trust the instructions (which means that I read them over and over again).  I did not use rivets as suggested in the book [nasty, loud, have-to-use-a-tool-and-why-would-I-when-I-can-make-a-button-hole-instead?! notions].  I am pleased with the end product, but I would suggest using a slightly heavier fabric than what I used.

Very nice! I got this book for Christmas and can't wait to get started on the projects. Your folders are a kick in the butt to start on some of the patterns!

Will definately be making at least 6 of these for my upcoming semester.  I hate it when the folders I purchase wear out.  These are great.  I have many, many semesters ahead of me and these would be great to keep things in order.   Wink

i'm thinking this would be great for a girl in college, and wondering about using 2 buttons with a cord that wraps back and forth around them.  also have a snap tool i'm dying to try out on anything, but that might take away from the effect.
