So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45

I Saw, I Sewed,... I Conquered?

I saw a picture of this project on the internet and, in the traditional beginning of several sewing disasters, thought "I can do that." I think it turned out rather well though, especially considering I made a pattern from a picture on the web.

Things I would do different:

My bottom right front corner is too bulky so it doesn't look as neat as the others.

I used fusible web to strengthen it but it is still too flexible so I would just use cardboard inside next time.

I forgot to put a pocket in for the pen. Hubby suggested just using a small piece of elastic like his case so any size pen would fit. I like that idea.

I might also make the side pocket into several small marker sized pockets so the kids could have a drawing case. That would be really nice for traveling or functions where they have to sit still and be quiet for more than, oh, five seconds.
