A while back I showed you the fabric
that I had made at Spoonflower
from a drawing that my oldest grandson made.
Well today is his birthday
and I wanted to give him an art caddy
so that he could create some more special things.
I had a remnant of Lightning McQueen fabric
that I knew would come in handy one day.
Well yesterday Cherise from Sewingly Along
and I had a play date :)
(why should children have all the fun?????)
We spent the evening cross stitching and chatting.
But before that, we decided to check out
the new Hobby Lobby in Huntington Beach.
Holy Cow that place is HUGE!
Cherise found the cutest gingerbread couple
salt & pepper shakers (at 50% off)
who doesn't love a great deal????
and I bought some colored pencils,
a drawing pad, a pencil sharpener and a gum eraser.
I used Peltex to give the caddy some strength
and I used clear vinyl and velcro to make a flap
to keep the pencils in place.
The drawing pad slides into a sleeve that I made
to keep it in place as well.
I made a zippered pouch on the front
to hold the eraser and sharpener.
The birthday boy is spending the day today
with his parents and siblings at Disneyland.
He won't get this until tomorrow.
Hope he likes it :)
