The binder pouch is very cute and so are the embellishments that come with it. The pouch is very thin though so I'm not sure how well this will hold up long term. The big issue for me was that the holes do not align properly to fit into the coordinating binder. I ended up covering the existing holes with a strip of washi tape and repunched them so I could add this to my binder. I bought this on sale so it wasn't worth returning but had I known the issues, I would have passed on this one.
I got this obviously to go with my Memory Planner. I had it out as I was getting things set up an organized. Right away it was clear the zipper was seen on so badly that it ends up limiting the size of things I can put in it, I figured it would be an easy fix one day when I have some time for sewing projects. Then I tried to put it away in my binder and realized the holes don't match up with the rings. Yes, there are 4 holes but I can't even get 2 to line up so I have to punch 3 extra holes, all 4 new ones if I want the thing centered. I can't send it back because I have already used some of the stuff so I even thought of buying an extra one and I could leave this on my desk with extra supplies but they are sold out and I just don't think I should have to pay for someone else's mistake. Anyone else's not fit right? It's hard to imagine there would be just one. From a business view point I hate to think how many batches/runs are off. As a consumer I'm just a little bummed.
The binder pouch is cute and the embellishments that come with it are Cute.
However the pouch is extremely thin so I'm not sure it will hold up for very long. The biggest issue I have is the holes do not align properly to fit into the binder. I had to punch new holes so that it would fit. Which in my opinion causes the pouch to look kind of tacky not as cute.
This is the second pouch, two years in a row, where the holes don't line up with the Heidi Swapp memory planners. I purchased one pouch last year from a craft store and one here on this site and they have the misalignment in the holes. I had to cover it with decorative masking tape and re-punch it because the holes were not even close to lining up.
FYI - This does not fit the Heidi Swapp Hello Watercolor Binder. My daughter bought this and the binder from a craft store. The pouch states it is made for the memory binders but I guess not all because the holes do not line up.
I wish I could attach a picture to the review
I loved this collection and bought almost everything in it!! But sorry Heidi, this just isn't up to par with the rest. The pouch is flimsy & the 'few' things in it are not worth the price & the inside was a total glue mess!!. Had to throw mine out!!! :(
