I wanted to have a place for stickers, sharpener, colored pencils, crayons AND markers. I figured I could easily cram it all together and it would still look good.
I also started this project with the intention to make a pattern to show everyone. I gave up on that half way though, but i'll show it to you anyway. I love the way it turned out, but I could NEVER EASILY explain how to attach and measure and sew down the pencil pockets and things with skill and technique. It was all just sorta winging it and MAKING it work.
The pad of paper was 9x12 inches
