The "Nancy"

Ok...I haven't ever posted anything I have ever sewn on my blog, but I am going to start.

Here is the front of a organizer/ notepad holder I made. I got the idea to make this while at Leadership in January. I was sitting in a class when a lady (Hi Nancy!) came and sat by me and she pulled out the cutest organizer/ notepad holder. I started making a sketch on my paper and then after the class asked her if I could take a few pictures so I could remember how it was laid out on the inside. Good thing I got pictures, because I just now got time today to make a pattern and make it!

Here is the inside with the pockets to organize things on the left and then the notepad holder on the right. The finished thing measures about 6 1/2" wide X 9 1/2" tall. The front and back cover of the organizer/notepad holder are hard/stiff to give it support. I am happy with the way it came out! I have decided to name this style of organizer/notepad holder the "Nancy". (If you want to see a close up, click on the photo.)

So what do you think...Do you want to see more sewing from me?

Thanks for looking!
