My Art Portfolio

Recently a friend asked me if I knew how to make something for her child to carry her crayons and coloring books in.  She sent me a picture of one she found in an online store.  I thought it was such a great idea.  I looked up others who have made them and ended up making my own pattern for one.  This one is for my daughter Haley.  I let her pick through my scrap bin for the art portfolio.  I think it turned out great, but there are a few things I need to fix.  I am going to make one for my other daughter, Kylie, now that she picked out her fabric.  Here is my first one.  Once I get this down right I will show step by step how it is made.   Haley had a doctor appointment today and she took this along.  It kept her busy the whole time we were there!  A great gift for any little artist.

  1. Love it! I have one my mom made when I was a little girl that I've saved to use as a pattern. One day!
