The back cover and the pockets inside are from a themed fabric. And the Busy Buddy comes with a small notebook, a click pencil, and an 8 count box of crayola crayons.
The tutorial on which I based mine, called for fusible batting. I chose to use fusible interfacing, which left them flimsy and the pockets over sized. I finished 4 practice Buddies, all but the buttons. Today, my job is to tear out the stitching on those so that I can try again tomorrow - this time with the fusible batting. Then I will rest and try to beat this head cold that I'm fighting. But like any busy bee, I will not give up, I will persevere, and I will win.
