Hello! I finished up this sewing project today and even though I would make some changes for the next time I make something like this, I'm kind of proud of how this turned out. It's wonderful when you can find a free tutorial of something you have pictured in your mind. You don't really have to think about measurements. Just cut and sew! I searched and searched but I couldn't find a tutorial on how to make this exactly like I wanted so I took some tips from a couple of sources and just decided to try it out. It's always scary to start cutting into fabric! I'm always worried about making mistakes especially because fabric can be expensive. Anyway, I think my brain hurt a little during this process!
HERE. But because I wanted to give this to a little toddler, I wanted to add some handles and little pockets for markers. Originally, I thought about adding a zipper on the cover or a different kind of pouch using velcro but I had to think about my sewing level! I couldn't really figure that out so I found this tutorial using this kind of pouch for crayons and handles sewn around it. Only thing I think one inch for each marker is a bit tight especially since there is a hard cover right behind it and adding all 5 markers like I wanted to stretched the fabric a bit. So that's why I ended up only putting in 3.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
