Original idea is from here. I have altered the pattern a little bit. I did more dc rows (or sc depending what terms you use) around the bottom. I found if there were too many holes near the bottom, pencils would fall out. I also made it bigger too. From memory I think I started with approx 80 chain. For sizing, it fits My First Bible beautifully.
With a super quick trip to Albany during the weekend, I picked up some girly black leather handles from 'the patchwork place' in Lockyer Ave to finish it off.
With three little ladies in this household eyeing it off (with various bags on their hooks), I am not sure who the special recipient will be.
