My goal is to make sewing FUN and frustration-free for all who use my patterns. Aivilo patterns are written in everyday English, as if a friend were telling you how to sew, with full color photos illustrating the process step-by-step. Each pattern is tested by a panel of sewists of many skill levels - to ensure the instructions are clear so you can enjoy a frustration-free sewing experience. Plus, if you have any questions while sewing, I'm always available at firstname.lastname@example.org to help you.View all patterns by designer (42) »
This pretty tote is perfect for girlie girls who love to color wherever they go. The feminine ruffles hide 9 crayon slots on each side, and little ones everywhere love the secret of having the crayons hidden away but so easily accessible.
ABOUT THIS PROJECT: These very easy instructions are great for those with at least basic sewing skills. There are 9 hidden crayon slots in the ruffles! Instructions are also given for a patch-style pocket inside. Bag measures 9" wide x 7" tall x 2 1/2" deep and stands on it's own.
Cutting instructions are included, not printable pattern pieces, so no printing is required!
3/4 yard focus fabric (lightweight quilting cottons / calico, without an obvious up or down pattern will work best) for exterior, bottom ruffle, straps and optional interior pocket
1/2 yard coordinating fabric for lining and top ruffle
1/2 yard fusible fleece interfacing (Pellon 987F is recommended but any fusible fleece at least 40" wide should work fine.)
erasable marker or pencil
