I don't really use the clover clips for binding, so I will use the zippered pocket for other things, but I've got a place for thread, for scissors, needles and a slide in pocket for extra things, like a notebook. I try to always have a notebook with me.
The original pattern had a strawberry for the scissors, I fussy cut a paisley from my fabric instead. The outside fabric and inside middle is a Brother Sister design from 2010. The blue is a Kona solid, and the pink is a batik.
I think I'd like to try making one with selvedges, but I am quite happy with this one.
