The tutorial was fantastic and the sewing time is very minimal...I was down to 15 minutes per cover as I got near the end. The left side of the cover holds 12 colored pencils and the right side has a pocket for a 6x9 drawing pad. I found my colored pencils and drawing pads at Target. With the size of these covers, you can get two complete covers with 1 1/8 yards of fabric. I also added simple felt embellishments to each cover. I used my new Stampin' Up chipboard collection to create a pattern for the bird and the small hearts.
I love this cute bird....he's so cheerful. The butterfly and cloud were from my own handmade stencil collection....really easy. Making 6 was a bit of a time investment, but I know the girls will enjoy them and I can't wait to get back to my sewing machine. I've got another project from Skip to My Lou's blog that I want to try tomorrow. Stay tuned!
