Little Artist Drawing Cases

I think that is what I’ll call these:  Little Artist Drawing Cases, or just drawing cases for short  (pattern available here).   Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been sewing an order of 5 of these for some Ladies in Training and their friends.

Here are some shots of the finished products.  Lots of dots:

Some frogs chit-chatting with eachother:

This is how the drawing pad slides into it’s pocket:

I love this fabric combo:

And, PINK, PINK, PINK!

    Those are incredible!! I love your fabric choices. I wish I had access to fabric like that in Canada. If only I had kiddies to make these for.

    Those look terrific and the brown/turquoise is currently my favorite color combination.

    OH OH OH! I can’t wait! They are so great. The dots one is “S”? and the pink and green is “C”? “A” is going to love the green and frog one. She is a tomboy and loves frogs and in fact when she finds them, she squeezes it so hard and won’t let go. Well, sad to say froggy doesn’t have a long life. These are super. You are super and I love them! Oh, and “I” is going to LOVE hers. I can’t thank you enough. Now I need to go look again!

    Tell me about it. I feel like I am in a tornado going round and round. We read all these books about old fashioned Christmas’ when life seemed more slow paced and simple. I wonder how we could get back to that? Thanks for the directions on the artist cases I love those!

    Those are great! It was clever using the mechanical crayons since they stay the same size. I couldn’t use those because my son doesn’t like them, my little stinker. Anyone that receives these are going to love them!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!!! Thank you so much for sharing. I see some in my future.

    I stumbled upon your website about 2 weeks ago and have loved reading all your old stuff. I have two little boys so I feel i can relate🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    I made two of these for my nephews. I used different sized notebooks and Staples’ brand of smaller sized twisty crayons. They turned out great! I don’t have any pictures to post, because I wrapped them up already. I just wanted to say thanks again for the tutorial that helped me think through the making process.
    Have a wonderful Christmas!
