I hope I am posting this in the right place. My daughter needed a binder for school this year, and last years' was still in good shape. Except that she had written all over it the front of it, so it was ugly. I could have just made a removable cover for the old one, but she needed to be able to use the pockets on the inside, so I sewed this stretchy sequiny fabric to the outside and it works great! What ten-year-old little girl doesn't like sparkles? I made her a pencil bag to match and then sewed on a contrast piece to her booksack, so now she is completely coordinated and the envy of the 6th grade! (girls, anyway)

The binder and pencil bag:
