Quick and Easy Planner Case Tutorial

Planner CasePlanner Case
While I love my SewAnna Button Designs Fabric Cover for my planner sometimes I just don’t want the bulk or I need something slimmer for in my bag. Being a mommy of (almost) 3 I usually end up with everything under the sun in my bag. Its not practical to just throw it in my bag and go. Solution is this, an Accordion file folder wrap cover.


Accordion folder you don’t mine cutting up.


1/8″ Hole Punch



Planner or Planner covers


  1. Remove the guts from the inside of the folder. you can throw this away or you can use it to make pockets in the inside of the cover if you’d like. (another tutorial for another time)
  2. Lay it as flat as you can and Trace the front cover to the non Flap section on the file. Trace the back cover from about the second crease line down from the flap. Trace the hole marks too!
  3. Cut out the covers and punch your holes. After that is done cut the slits to make the cover interchangeable.
  4. Measure 1.25″ over from the holes and about 3/4″ from top and bottom on the front cover. These are your elastic holes, punch them just like you did the others. Snag elastic from the folder waste and thread it in the holes.
  5. Put it on your planner and Enjoy!
  6. Optional: Dress it up with a monogram or Vinyl decal and Share on IG tagging @SewAnnaButton (thats Me!)

Project galore.

This week was a work week. I have been designing away on a few new designs. One of which is not quite finished yet. The finished one is a new toddler backpack.  It’s smaller in size to fit perfectly on their little backs.  It will hold necessities easily and has velcro closures for toddler ease of access.

The unfinished is a revision of my former Sooki dress.  Grading up patterns tend to take some time and testing to perfect. I do have a small peak.

The final new project I’ve been working on is with Bones. We have been designing a custom ring wrap for my engagement ring. Since its been 4 years is time I get an actual wedding band.  Pictured is my prototype. This was before final changes and metal casting.
