Near the end of the month I was spurred out of my sewing hiatus to make a quick gift for my great niece on her 3rd Birthday. :)
I was reading blogs and came across an idea someone made (sorry I didn't bookmark so not sure who this was) to make a little handled tote. I modified the tote to my own crafty idea. I wanted it to be a travel tote for my great niece to carry her art (whatever that maybe) or books etc. She is blessed with many grandparents who love to have her visit and so I thought this would work great.
Front pocket and velcro closure to the bag keeps everything together.
Zipper pocket for markers (dry erase crayola makers inside)
Inside ruffle elastic straps to hold dry erase board or drawing paper.
Inside side pocket for books or papers. I found a learn to write the alphabet book with letters you trace with your finger then you practice. I thought this would be good for a 3 year old.
I included a little elastic center strap to put the flannel erase cloth. Everything has a place and then you close it up with the velcro tab and carry it away with the padded straps. So cute.
Fabric is a new line that I recently won by Tamara Kate for Michael Miller Fabrics called Flight Patterns.
