I borrowed this book from my SIL about a month or so ago -
I added a zippered pocket to the lining, with a silver ring off one side for keys or whatever. I also used a magnetic snap to hold the top together, this was my first attempt at this one and googled how to do it just to be sure I was going to do it right. Thank you to all the fellow bloggers who put little tips and hints on their blogs!
The straps are leather bag straps from Clover. Really nice and soft!
