Does it need its own bag? I guess not. I mean, I usually just todd it in my purse and take it with me to doodle in. But this is for when I'm going somewhere specifically TO journal! It's made with muslin for demonstration purposes, but I'd like to try canvas.
It opens completely flat, I don't know why I like that so much, but I really do!
This pocket is sized specifically FOR my journal:
These ones are just for "stuff".
The straps are tie scraps, which totally amuses me. I'm trying to decide if it needs a closure of some kind but I really like it just the way it is!!
