i really do love making gifts for the loved ones in my life, especially the kids. last year i made them all super hero capes with their monograms on the back. this year i decided to bring out the artist in them by making them each a traveling art bag.
i purchased the sketch books , colored pencils, erasers, scissors & stickers to fill the bag. when disigning the pattern i used the sketch book as my starting point for the size. from there i just added a pocket with a snap closure to the other side and handles with a snap closure. this bag could be used for all ages by changing the fabric and the types of art supplies you pair with it. i also love this gift idea for the kids to be able to keep in the car so they always have something to keep them busy for those long holiday road trips to see grandma.
i hope you all had a great holiday, and have a healthy & prosperous new year!
