This is something that I did for a boy who love tractors and all cars that you could imagine. My idea was to have a coloring book inside my “fabric bag” together with a blank book for his illustrations. I also did put the handles on the sides and elastic for easy closure, after all it was for somebody who has just 4 years.
I was in a hurry and I didn’t found the tutorial on the Google (I know I didn’t search long enough). So I’m not sure if I did see similar tutorial with all the elements that I did place them here, but I think I did make one version by my memory maybe from different sites. Really don’t remember. At the end I did realize I need to make one more for my little girl, and I will make it with wider pen pockets, so my girl will have a place for crayons too. But because this is so fun and funky maybe I will make one more for myself for my art journaling too. The most important, if you like it, now here is my version of tutorial; and I’m sure you will get an idea of some extra pocket…have fun.
PS I did use a serger, but you don’t need it. If you will watch the picture, you will see that most of the seams are even not visible…so use a zig zag stitch instead. I was just too lazy to thing ahead where I need to make finished seam and where not. This is actually so simple project that I was playing with my kid when I did make this, so it is totally perfect for beginner.
