I like this! I'm thinking it might be a good idea to enlarge for photo album covers too! Thanks for the pattern! ~tina

I started with your pattern to help me design a cover for my Moleskin organizer, adding an inner pocket for pens and a marker and post-its, and sewed in a single chain page marker. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
