    My BFF made me this as an anniversary gift. She doesn't normally sew at all (yes, I'm trying to convert her) and totally surprised me. Especially since she was sewing the binding on in front of me!!!! :D She remembered that last summer I was having trouble stashing my Pepsi bottle, scissors and sewing supplies while camping. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: It has velcro on the back so it will hang from a camp chair. I thought I'd share it with you all --- would be a great "sellable" item, I think!

    I like it and think that I will make one for camping. I'm always losing my scissors. Yours is really cute with the rickrack and colorful print fabrics.

    What a great and useful item. Reminds me of the organizers they make to hang on walkers at the nursing homes.
