This weekend, i noticed that i was going to interviews a lot. I mean quite a lot. Three a week? Maybe that was just a one time thing. Anyway. So it occurred to me that maybe i should get myself a nice present. A nice leather present. Maybe the kind that zips up, contains my notebook, and the iPad, pens and stylus.
So of course I went to Smythson, where I found this for £335.
Later, pausing for coffee, I stole a page off my partner’s notebook and pocketmodded it. Then i doodled my prototype ideas into it, as if it actually was a folio, in miniature.
I made two versions of the outside and inside. Photos below.
I then bought some leather and (just today, on myfabrics.co.uk) zippers. Total spend so far: £73.
