Kids' Drawing Case

Last week, Ellen over at the long thread posted a kids' drawing case tutorial.

Miss Lily is have surgery on her ears this week, so I thought this would be a nice case to bring to the hospital.  I also made one for a sweet little girl who turn four on the weekend.

Ballerinas and pink gingham

Strawberry shortcake and pink gingham

Unable to source any moleskin notebooks at a reasonable price point, I included an artist mini-sketch book instead.

I like the way the cases turned out. The batting is a nice touch.

Thanks for stopping by!
