from Melanie Testa's "Sew-plies" tutorial.
My outer fabric(cotton) was too thin so I added an inner sleeve with a lovely bird print linen. The left side can hold a small pair of scissors, and the right side was sewn halfway down to create a mini-pocket so that a very small item can be stored safely and easily retrieved. The batting-flap tucks inside the bag and the whole thing closes with a little snap.
