Coloring Book Caddy's

Today I made 2 of these "Coloring Book Caddy's" for my niece and nephew. I didn't notice until after I loaded the photo on, but Hunter has taken some of the crayons out. This one is for Zeph, he is 18mths. and I put the Jumbo crayons in his. Madison's is out of the same fabric except hers is red were this has navy. I added a jumbo coloring book and a box of crayons to each bag. I think I will give them next weekend when we celebrate Christmas at Mom's. I have them a toy each, but this will be a little something extra.

This evening, I have every opportunity to sew in "PEACE" and I am just too restless to concentrate on anything. Isn't that the way it goes? It's only 6:30pm so maybe I will find something to do later.

Today is my big brother's 40th birthday. I called him earlier to wish him a happy birthday and to crack a few "age jokes" I am 35 and he tell everyone that I am older than he is. So we had a nice little phone conversation.

That caddy is so cute. I may have to make one for Grandson Max.

I used that fabric as part of the fabric I used when I made him two baby quilts (before he was born). Holly wanted those primary colors instead of using the normal pinks and blues.

That caddy is a great idea, similar to the pencil roll. Another idea to store in the back of brain! Tracey

It is such a great idea these caddies you are making and you whip them up in no time.

Is this from a pattern or have you come up with these on your own???

I'll have to look around for some little kids to make that for I just love the whole idea of it.

That is SOOO cute!!! I thought of one little addition. Kids are clutzy...what about making a little flap to velcro over the crayons? Now with your embroidery machine you could EMBROIDER on that flap!!!! =)
