Shopping List Organiser

Well I have been seriously missing in action for a while! Our family is just coming out the other side of a really bad fortnight of flu. I've been kept busy with sick kiddies and then a sick husband and then little old me got sick too.
Today I thought I would make something for my own mum. One of my mum's favourite things to do is make lists, so I thought a little organiser would be perfect for her. The pattern was just guesswork mostly, but I'm happy enough with it. There are a few imperfections (see the top seam over the notebook and the left part of the pocket), but I know she won't mind them :)
I pieced together some scraps for the outside and quilted it in a free motion style.
I made a pocket for a notebook and a place for pens on the right. The left pocket would be handy for holding receipts or coupons. I added a piece of elastic to hold it closed. Hope she likes it!
Thanks for looking!
