Notebook and pen folder from upcycled shorts - Day 46 Use What You've Got

Last week I made some mini backpacks with some old shorts I had in my stash. 

I still have some of the fabric from the shorts left, so yesterday I made a matching notebook folder:

I adapted this tutorial for the folder.

I think they make a cute little matching set.

With the all important seal of approval from my two girls, I think I'll make matching folders for the other backpacks too!
