Kids’ Drawing Case

Here’s a pattern for a kids’ drawing case that holds 8 colored pencils and a notebook and folds over with a Velcro tab closure. Handy for travel, it also makes a quick and easy gift for kids of most any age. I made several of these over the weekend for birthday gifts.

You could embroider the child’s name, add an appliqué design, or customize it in any way you choose. I made two of these without the quilt batting, but found that the use of batting provides an added cushion and weight. You can use a lightweight cotton canvas or any cotton fabric. For the notebook, I used a 5″ x 8 1/4″ moleskine, available here.
