Hello all!

I recently needed a portfolio case, and I just could not bring myself to buy one of those vinyl ones that everyone else has, or pay big bucks for some nicer one, so I decided to take a chance and make my own.  I basically made a cover for a 3 ring binder....


Cover

Now some detail information...  The covers are batted with quilt batting glued to the cover...  the fabric for the outside, the plaid, is some upholstery canvas I found at Joanns, the lining is this pinstriped fabric that has a slight shine...  The top left pocket can hold business cards, the pen holder has a pleat at the bottom....  Yeah!  That's all.  What do you think?

I like this neat look. Good thinking. You carry it almost all the time, so it's nice to have something personalized. Good work!  Smiley

Thank you very much!

It was a lot of fun to make, and I already have ideas for others!  For example, a waterproof one for all of the recipes that I print off online...  Smiley

Thats really nice!  I could never use something like that though.  I end up doodling and such on my plastic folders.   Grin

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

This is great!  I really like the idea for the business card holder.

Thank you very much! 

I tend to have an obsession with functionality as design, so the pockets were just absolutely necessary.  Tongue
