take note!

This weekend I made time to pull out one of the Dog Under My Desk patterns that I hadn’t yet made: the Notepad Organizer.

I just adore this fabric (from Spoonflower) and I think it turned out quite well! I’ve been on a kick of using fabric from my stash instead of shopping and I’m finding lots of fun stuff I forgot I had.

Of course I don’t happen to have any of the right sized notepads on hand, but I will find one soon enough, I’m sure.

Having made that one according to the pattern, I then couldn’t resist adapting it to make a larger one that will fit an 8.5 x 11″ notepad.

I did some excellent math to figure out how to make it the right size, and it totally worked!

It’s maybe a little taller than it would have to be, but I wanted to have some leeway so that any loose papers wouldn’t risk having their edges poking out.

We recently started playing a D and D campaign with our trivia teammates and it has been great fun so far! I will be using the large notepad organizer to hold my character sheets and any other related stuff. Here is our crew on a recent quest:

Ongoing campaign

My character is a gnome sorcerer but I haven’t found a good mini yet, so for the time being, I’m being represented by an Adipose. K is an elf ranger, currently in the guise of a Dalek. There is no shortage of Who-related minis around our place, but we have room to improve our collection of fantasy-based ones!
