Quiet packet for little ones

Nina showed me a tutorial for this little art packet a few months ago.  In my current mode,  I cut it out about 3 weeks ago and finally got it sewed up this week.  
It has a lot of pieces and lots of instructions, but it actually went to together simply with no problems.  

here is the tutorial from a very big blog named U-Create



I used fabric from my stash while the creator of this tutorial used 4 fat quarters.
Yes,  I had the little hand buttons and hand print fabric, not sure where either of them came from.  


All the way open
the tutorial puts colored pencils in the 3rd panel and she also shows where she added an elastic pocket for little toys instead.  Since this packet is for a young boy,  I did the pocket with some Hot Wheels in them.  
The center packet calls for chalkboard fabric.  
Nope, I had never heard of it before and found out that Joanns Fabrics sells it.  I got a small piece on Etsy.  
Behind the chalk board is a pocket to insert a tablet.  


I thought one of those little half-size coloring books might fit instead of a tablet. The ones we have are about half an inch too long.

So I am thinking that when I make more,  I will increase the length by 1 inch.  

The only problem I had with the tutorial is that it does not say to round off the corners of the crayon flap.  It is very clear in the pictures but I like word instructions.  If you have any sewing experience,  I think you could make this project.

  5. I've seen art packs along this same line before, but this one is bigger and has more stuff than most. Perfect for the long car trips Brad has to make every other weekend.
