I was debating exactly where this belonged...it is made of fabric and sewn but is made to hold paper as a binder/book.

Long ago I purchased some loose-leaf ledger paper. Not sure why exactly, I assume it was on clearance. I have a fondness for random paper I think from when my dad would bring home stuff from work. Since nowadays at my work everything is on the computer (hurrah for not having to use to much paper) I get a bit nostalgic for green bar paper and old ledgers. Anyways, when I started my little Etsy shop I started to use the paper to write down my lists and keep track of sent/received, etc. I work in IT so sometimes I just like to be 'old school' and physically write things down. I have been meaning to purchase or make a binder to keep it in. The sheets are larger than letter size but not quite as large as legal size so I was having trouble finding a binder.

Now take into account the bolt of double-sided fusible still interfacing I bought long ago when I was making cube cabanas. What the heck can I use that stuff for?! I made two rectangles to size and fused on an old sheet (we had this print when I was a kid and had to pick it up at Goodwill). I sewed on some wide bias binding, added eyelets and rings to hold the whole thing together. Ta-da binder for my little pocket-money enterprise. Had I thought more about it I would have embroidered the front before fusing so I think I will create an Iron-On to create a label.





Everything was from my stash. I keep telling people I am slowly moving the craft stores to my sewing room.  Cheesy Sometimes it feels good to find a reason for some random thing you acquired and claimed that 'someday I'll need it'.

I LOVE old school accounting and record paraphernalia!  This is really lovely.
