Mojo like Lightening!!

One brilliant FLASH and then it's gone!

I've noticed that April seems to be a slow mojo month for me.  I usually do some travelling in April, and then with the rainy season I'd rather curl up under a blanket with a good book!  I did notice that I'd finished a project that I'd forgotten to blog about, which is surprising because I was pretty stinkin proud of it!  A girlfriend of mine has a two year old that recently celebrated a birthday, and I knew she loved to color.  Now every girl has to have her accessories, right?  So this is what I came up with:

Isn't it cute?  I took a look at a few of them online, and got out my handy dandy little ruler and designed my own!  There is a layer of muslin/duck cloth in between the pink and blue pieces to give it a little more stability.  I wanted to make sure this would stand up to a two year old!  I measured each pocket to hold two washable crayons, and used a taylor's pencil to mark on the felt where the seams should go. 

As you can see, I have yet to master the art of sewing on seam binding, but I don't think she's gonna complain!  Here's a vew of the back when it's unrolled, I love the little detail the brown thread gives to the roll!

She sure seemed to like it, and Mom liked that the crayons were washable!  Now she can tuck this into the diaper bag when they are headed out somewhere and the Birthday Girl will have something to keep her hands busy!

Thanks for looking!
