This was a guild workshop project for me. A nearby quilt shop provided the pattern and complete fabric Batik kits with decorative trim and even the small cutting mat for $25. It's great for tossing in a tote or keeping in the car for handwork. I made another one for my DGD. She keeps her gel pens, markers, and paper notebook in it. Teens seem to always have special pens and notebooks to doodle. If you Zentangle it's perfect for on the go.
