Portable Art Case DIY

**Have you entered to win my oilcloth apron [2]?

My sweet 14 year old MaddieLynn [3] made a portable art case for her sister’s tenth birthday gift. It was very well received!


The case was made to be carried either as a back pack or a shoulder bag.



MaddieLynn used flexible cutting boards and quilt batting to give it structure and padding.  She included elastic for pencil, glitter, glue and crayon holders and velcro for keeping it securely closed.


She even inluded a center compartment for extra markers!


I love the colorful fabric she picked out, and I think she did a fantastic job, especially since she didn’t even use a pattern! This was her own creation!
