I made these for my girls from a pattern off youcanmakethis.com they're constantly running around coloring (and leaving their crayons all over the place). The top one has fabric from the Olivia the pig line which says "Olivia" all over it and is for my daughter name, well, Olivia Smiley

The elephants is an imported japanese light canvas that has glitter on it. And the middle apples is just regular cotton. I liked using the canvas as the outside and doing just the pocket part a coordinating color. The whole thing is done with about as much fabric as a fat quarter, some interfacing and velcro. I thing the velcro is better than a button or snap for my littlest is 3 and I think the other fasteners would be too frustrating.

These would be awesome to add to stockings, easter baskets, whip up a few for party prizes or big brother/sister gifts. They took about 1.5 hrs to make all three and that's with figuring out the pattern.

Those are so cute--I esp. love the elephant fabric!
I might have to try making 1 for my dd.  Are they easy enough for a VERY beginner sewer to make?

yeah they're pretty easy, three pieces of fabric that are rectangles to cut. The hardest part is just sewing straight lines for all the crayon holder places but if you have an erasable fabric marker or the like it's not hard.
