I haven't felt like doing much lately so when inspiration hit I got right to work. I wanted a little pouch to hold a couple of crayons and paper to carry around in my purse for my daughter. She is 1 and has just begun to color so I didn't want to have a ton of crayons in the holder-- actually I'll probably only keep about three. I also wanted a little place to hold small pieces of paper or this cute little notebook I bought 3 for $2 on sale at Target.
I didn't write up a real tutorial for this little holder because I was hurrying and there are a ton of tutorials floating around if you are wanting to make something similar. My measurements for the two main pieces were 10 3/4 x 6 1/2 and for the strip holding the crayons in place is a folded over piece that was 10 3/4 x 4 1/2. The final piece is the 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 tab to hold the velcro that keeps the holder together. I used velcro specifically because I thought it would be easy enough for me daughter to handle herself.
And there you have it. A quick and cute little holder for my budding artist.
I am a young mother, a wife, a friend to my rescued pitbul/boxer puppy, avid crafter, and when I find the time I like to read good books. I wish I could share more of my blessed life with you all on this little blog, but the reality is I just do not feel safe. So you will only get a peak into my life, but please enjoy :)
I have recently gotten into reviewing books for WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers and need a little help. In order to continue the program I need people to rank my reviews. It's so easy... just use the rating bar under each of my reviews, give me as many stars as my review is worth, and input your email address. As an added bonus for ranking my review, your name will also be put in a drawing to win a copy of the book! Thanks for your help!
