I cut 2 (black print & red print) pieces of fabric at 13-1/2" x 9" layered with batting and machine quilted. I had some black binding left over from my last quilt and it was just right for this project. I first sewed a 9" length of binding across one end and then folded that end up 4" to become the pocket, baste in place. Then finish off with binding around the 3 unfinished edges. To close I used large snaps and 2 large Cherry Cobbler designer buttons to cover the stitching for the snaps on the outside.
