    Now I know why so many people are addicted to these! They're such fun to make. It took me about 5 1/2 hours, not counting all the time spent reading the directions, and trying to visualize what to do. LOL

    This one is for my DIL for Christmas. She's an attorney, so I wanted it to look professional. What do you think?

    Thanks for looking.

    Love it. Black and white are two of my favorite colors and I love the splash of red. She's going to love it.

    Oh, yes, I forgot to say I used a magnetic snap rather than the button and loop.

    Thanks for your nice comment. :lol:

    I've always wondered about a magnetic snaps, instead of the button. Are they easy to put in?

    Yes, mommadorian, they are. Each side of the snap has 2 brads, you cut a couple of tiny slits in the fabric, push the brads thru, put on the little washer and close the brads. And, voila, it's done!
