Recently I've moved my many thousands of family photos onto an external hard drive. My previous external hard drive hit the floor that many times that it started to really falter.
Family photos are too precious to lose, so I decided to satisfy a sewing urge and whip up a simple protective pouch for it.
I decided to put a buttonhole at the top so it can remain closed even while in use.
I just plug it in through the buttonhole. Now if it gets knocked off the table the photos aren't lost.
One of Adelaide's hair elastics, stitched into the binding, serves as a button loop.
