Ever since we got the birthday invite, I’ve been obsessing about how to put this present together.
Next time I’ll center the initial better so that the button looks more like a period. And, I’ll make the crayon pockets wider so it doesn’t pucker so much. Here’s the inside – Twistables and a drawing pad:
And the back:
I had SO much fun figuring this out, almost as fun as making my first purse! So help me out – what is this thing called? A drawing case?
And now I want to make more – I’m feeling myself slipping into Christmas present mode which means that all other projects fall to the bottom of the list. Oh no . . . . I’m slipping . . . . slipping . . . . help!
Thanks to Kimberly for teaching me how to make a cord out of yarn and Karyn for telling me about fabric-covered buttons. Thanks go here for the circle inspiration. And to Ashley who’s pictures of her dpn case inspired me to make a similar project for crayons. Would I have any inspiration by myself? I think not. You blogging ladies (all of you!) stretch my brain and force me to be creative. Thank you!
