J's Monster Art bag

I spotted this monster bag on Katie's blog and knew right away I wanted to make it for our sweet nephew for his 8th birthday. Like Katie, I added pockets for twistable colored pencils. Unlike Katie, my measuring was a little faulty and I only fit 10 of the 12 pencils in. Oh well, the other two fit inside the bag with the sketchbook I included. The beard is a little hard to see in the photo, but I used a scrap of brown corduroy that provides an interesting texture. It was a quick and fun little project, I hope he enjoys using it!

  1. Looks great! Liking the speckled nose :). If it makes you feel any better the number of pockets came out right only because of chance on my bag. There was no precise measuring going on, I just got lucky. Thanks for sharing! Really fun to see what others are making. Have a beautiful day.
