New Pattern Book

I don't know if you remember me saying this...

Well, I got it for Christmas and have already made 3 patterns out of it.  One I've modified and had to make 3 of them and it's still not turning out like I want it too.  I think I need to try one more time.  Maybe I can just change the last one a bit.

First one.  I put the elastic on it so it would hold my Kindle in there because it was so big and the Kindle kept falling out.

Thought of putting another piece of elastic on the inside to hold the Kindle in but just thought since I had the fabric, I'd make another one.
Added a velcro tap and made it much smaller.

The Kindle barely fit in this one and my notepad didn't fit at all.  I was going to make it work and just cut down the notepad but my husband pointed out that once I get the skin I ordered for the Kindle, it may not squish in.  Back to the sewing machine.

I liked the velcro tap so I kept that.

I think this is the one I'm going to stick with.  It's my 3rd attempt.  It's about 2 inches to small.  I might just cut it up the center and add in a few inches of fabric but we'll see if I get to it. ;0)  I also added tabs to hold the Kindle in the folder.  I like that!

Nice job in all three cases. I hope the next adjustment is successful and works for you.
