I love love love how this turned out!!! I found this tutorial through Sew Mama Sew--- Elizabeth from Oh Fransson featured a new tutorial every month during 2009. I new this was something easy that I could manage.
Halfway through the project I hit a roadblock and was stuck. I thought I was following the directions carefully but when I turned it right side out-- the closure flap was sewn inside! WHOOPS! I was so frustrated and it was really late at night and I just wanted to finish! I decided to look up Elizabeth's e-mail on her blog and hoped to hear back from her in a few days-- she wrote me back right away!! AWESOME! She helped me figure out what I did wrong and I was able to finish it that night!
I made a matching mouse pad and pen holder too- but of course I didn't take pictures :(
