So I found the free pattern section of Amy Butler's website and LOVED the portfolio pattern. I printed off the instructions and right away made the small one. Very easy pattern to follow and I love it...but I have no idea what to use it for! Anyway, enjoy some pictures Smiley

really nice work!  i've been wanting to see this pattern worked up--thanks for making it!  i love the fabric, too...hmmm, looks familiar!  Smiley 

i think amy butler suggests using it to store notecards, but that seems like a waste of a lovely thing!  what might fit in it that you could use more often? 

love it!  Smiley

I just found the same pattern and I'm pretty sure its meant for use as a journal cover too. Great fabric! I don't have anything near so nice to make some with :/ I think I need to update my stash! Wink

Thanks for the great comments! The fabric was found at a local thrift store and I love it. I made a bag from it for a swap and had to make sure I made myself something.

Looks great! I love it!!!

I am a beginner sewer and I would like to make this portfolio. I found the pattern yesterday and already pressed, measured, and cut the fabric as per the instructions. I'm not sure if I was just too tired last night when I read the assembly instructions, or if the pattern isn't basic enough for me, but I couldn't seem to make sense of the pattern.  Would anybody be willing to help?  Please let me know if I've posted in the wrong place.  Thanks!

I don't consider myself a beginner sewer, but I got a little confused too, mainly with the pockets. If you post where you got lost, maybe I can help!

Lol, I was actually going to ask about the pockets..in Step 2, part A:
Do I lay both pieces face up on top of eachother, then sew the 7" side when they are stacked? Is the purpose of this just to make it thicker?

Then in part B, turn the right sides out and press..not a clue what that means!!

Thank you so much for your help, I really should take a class somewhere!!!
