    First take an old binder and cut off the covers. Or you can use something else flat and hard that you can staple through or maybe super glue. also a binder with a pocket will help so you can use a pocket to hold paper.

  • Step 2

    Lay both your binder covers on your fabric. let the bottems of the folder be about an inch and 1/2 away from eachother. Then cut one big rectangle around both covers leaving 1/2 inch of extra fabric around the 3 sides of each binder.

  • Step 3

    Staple the extra 1/2 on to the covers. or maybe glue it I havennt tried it but it might work better.

(i created another small puch to hold just regular pencles you can make as many pouches as you want)
