When I heard that Shelby wanted a “made-by-Kim bag” for her birthday, I was delighted. I couldn’t decide what bag would be better liked by a 10-year-old, so we gave her two. And a holder for colored pencils.
Shelby’s favorite color is purple and both have a touch of the color. And, I don’t think any gal can have too many bags. The first tote is a smaller version of the totes I made for Christmas gifts.
The second bag is the blue/purple one I made from place mats (on the right).
Then, after spotting colored pencils at Target for $1, I decided to try a holder for Colored Pencils. I’ve seen these around the Internet, but never had a chance to try it. This was a quick and simple project. I didn’t use a pattern or anything, but it’s relatively intuitive and turned out great.
It felt good to be at the sewing machine again. I think I’ll be doing that more often.
