1. I love it! My seven year old loves to have pen and paper in the car when we drive 3 hours to grandma’s. I think I am going to make him this for Christmas. Thanks for the great idea!

    • I noticed that our Walmart carries a lot of character fabric. If your seven year old likes Cars 2 or Tangled or something, that would make a great outside. I think people might have gotten mad when they removed the fabric section from Walmart because now there is a whole aisle of it again!

  2. I do this using a placemat instead of separate pieces of fabric. You can see the pocket divider lines on the outside, but it makes the whole project a few steps simpler. 🙂

  3. I want to make one but don’t have a sewing machine. Wonder how hard it would be without and not very experienced sewer/stitcher at that but looking at this and the one on 31gifts I’d like to make my own but I’m scared.. Silly? Yeah probably.

    • One of the commenters said that she uses a placemat to make these. So that is over half the sewing done for you. You could also make it into 3 sections instead of 4 which is less sewing and closer to the 31 Gifts organizer. I think using the placemat idea would be very doable without a sewing machine.

  4. I am contemplating making a Bible Cover for my daughter and I am thinking from looking at your pictures that the organizer side could be on the outside of the cover as she likes pockets for notebook, pencil, etc… Do you think this could be adapted to this purpose?

    • Wow! Great idea for an adaptation! Maybe put elastic about two inches in to use to hold it to the Bible.You could slide the cover right into the elastic.
