Filofax Sleeve

Good evening!  Been busy scheduling my very first That Craft Place DT Post for Sunday, can't wait for you guys to see what I've made.  You'll love the theme too!

Anyway, whilst I was writing that blog post, I thought I'd also quickly show you today's make.  A sleeve for my brand new A5 "The Original" Filofax in Dark Aqua.  I'm in LOVE with my new planner and it only arrived yesterday!  I wanted to keep it in pristine condition from the start so dug out these cute fabrics and dusted of my sewing machine!

The sleeve is padded to protect my planner better and the front pocket is strengthened with Bondaweb to give it more structure.  The main pocket holds my A5 planner with room to slide my Tablet in next to it if needed.  The front pocket holds spare post it notes and a couple of my favourite pens!
