Kids Roll- Up Art Kit

I have no idea what these are called- a kit, a roll, a caddy, a portable studio? Whatever the term I've seen them on etsy and wanted to try making one for myself. Then my cute little god-daughter asked for art supplies for her birthday. And that was all the prompting I needed. So as soon as I had the time I decided to see what I could do.

I didn't have a pattern but they looked doable. To be honest I'm not much of a pattern girl yet anyways.They make my head swim when I first see them. I've had my sewing machine for a few months now and am still figuring out how it all works. But it's fun and I'm always up for a challenge. So without pattern,  but with a pic or two from etsy, and a couple of sketches-  ta da! There are still a few things to finish up. The clasp needs velcro, I need some elastic to hold on the glue stick... but you get the picture. :)

Clasp isn't sewn on yet. No velcro in the house.
I thought those who are new to sewing might appreciate a tutorial of how to make something without a pattern, while those who do know- I'd suggest you don't look. I know what I did will probably make your head swim. You'll know way better ways of doing things. I kind of figure stuff out as I go.

 I'll post that how-to in the next day or two. Thanks as always for spending a few minutes of your day here. I appreciate it SO MUCH!!!!
