This book ended up a lot closer to what I wanted. I left enough space between the edge of the page and the inside cut so that it didn’t get maladjusted. I liked the cloth cover, and kept it clean and free of debris while it was drying. I also attached a strap wiht a buckle. The buckle works. As a purse though, a buckle is really unsuitable, because it takes too long to open and close. It’s bad enough on shoes, which you only take on or off maybe twice a day, at most. Of the cloth patterns I chose, this is my favorite. I think the stripes are refreshing and fun.
