Last week I made a book holder for a friend's birthday.
I had a vinyl folder with pockets on each side so I thought I could recycle this into something pretty.
The fabric I chose is a piece I bought years ago and did not want to "waste" on just anything: there was more than a metre in the piece and I had resisted using it for several years. My attitude to using my stash has really changed of late: no keeping "good" fabric, lace, beads for that special project.
My friend has just turned 70 and loves books and writing so I thought this would suit her and the fabric was perfect for the project.
