This year I am a member of both School Council and the Parents Association which means I have quite a few meetings to attend each month, and quite a few papers to keep track of. In amongst a million things that were going on last month I decided that what I really needed to fulfill my roles to the best of my ability was a fancy document holder.

And so I set about making one.

I made this out of fabric covered with the same clear plastic I used last year to make Lugger Bags for the kinder teachers.

I simply placed the plastic either side of a rectangle of fabric and sewed around it to hold it in place. Then I finished with some fancy snaps using the new metal die set I bought for my snap press.

Now, as you can see, I am truly ready to be an active and responsible member of the school community :)
