Granny Craft #1--Handy Notepad Holder

What kitchen is complete without one of these handy dandy notepad holders????  This is the original pattern courtesy of Annie's Pattern Club, copyright 1983:

 I had initially tried to stay true to the pattern, and do the adorable little strawberries and flower...but my craft ADD kicked in big time and I felt rushed to finish it so that it wouldn't be added to my ever increasing WIP pile!  (Only made worse by the huge influx of fabulous patterns and books!!!)  This is my modern take on the little memo pad holder:

At first I thought it was really awful, but now that I've given it a flower with a vintage button center, I'm quite liking it and considering making another or two in more modern/prettier colors.
Well, what do you you guys think???

  1. I love it, you could also Crochet a heart for the front of another one and use it for Valentines cards for each of the kids, such a sweet idea. Or make one with a couple of the fold down flaps for a mail organiser. It rocks!!
