Need a fun quick weekend project? Look no further.
Being a mama to 5 school-aged kids means my house is filled with all sorts of supplies – notebooks, pens, crayons, colored pencils + markers to last a lifetime! A few months back, I showed a fun way to take these items on the go – a way that could help them not end up melted or lost in my car or bag, and just make it a little more manageable for my kids to bring them with us on the go with my COLOR ON THE GO – Travel Art Supply Carrier .
Now, I am back to show you how to use some of your fabric stash to spruce up those notebooks + a quick pouch to carry not just pens + pencils, but all the things - ruler, scissors, sticky notes, markers - I could go on.
Introducing the latest patterns in my Simply Series, I bring to you...
the Simply Patchwork Notebook Cover
+ Simply Pencil Pouch.
For this project I got to work with fabric from the fun Season of Tribute Chapter 5 collection. Take a look at the gorgeous Crafting Magic by Maureen Cracknell for Art Gallery Fabric. You can check out these projects + more in the Crafting Magic lookbook.
I love the rich, crisp bold colors found in this collection. I mixed the collection with a few coordinating Pure Solids and it was a match made in heaven.
