Crayon Coloring Art Folio
Crayon Coloring Art Folio

Hey guys, welcome back for another tutorial today. I’m going to be showing you how to make this really fun crayon art folio So to grab the pattern for this project just head over to my blog which is linked below and also in the information icon So this is a paint pattern and is available at my Etsy shop and my all the money for this project Does go to help make my youtube channel better and give you more and better content So thank you so much if you already have purchased it and let’s get into the tutorial So for this tutorial I will be using cotton fabric medium weight interfacing and for my closure I’m using snaps, but you can of course substitute for velcro Also, if you are afraid that your little ones won’t be able to use the snaps So cut out all your pieces. You should have two of the main body of the bag pieces one crayon slot To slip pocket pieces two pieces for the straps, but you could also substitute those for a thick ribbon Two pieces for the little flap that goes over it and then that’s it So I just went ahead and ironed on all of my interfacing And now I will start working on the crayon piece So this is the piece that will turn into all of little slots. So I’m just gonna take it and fold it in half lengthways and I will sew down the long edge So this pattern is based on a quarter of an inch seam allowance, so just remember that when you go to do all your seams And now I will flip this piece right side out and then press We’re gonna work on all the interior pieces first and then we can assemble it all in the end So now I’m just going to do a top stitch. I’m gonna do it on the folded edge and Then I will set this piece aside And start working on our so pockets So this navy blue fabric was a little bit thicker, so I didn’t put interfacing on it But all the rest of the pieces does have interfacing so I’m just gonna take it and I’m going to fold it in half and then I will do that with my second piece. This is the smaller sub pocket and Then I will just take it over to my sewing machine and again do another top stitch on the folded edge This just makes things look a little bit more prettier and helps keep it nice and folded So after that, we’re going to work on our little flaps So I’m going to take the two pieces put them with the right sides together and I will sew all the way around leaving the short end open So I’m going to go very slow when I go around the curve If you’re not comfortable doing curves you could make this tab just a rectangle if you’re new, it curves and of course This will give you a little bit of practice, but just you know Take your time go slow lift your presser foot every couple, you know a couple centimeters and just you know, Try to make that nice and smooth So now I’m going to take my scissors and I’m going to cut little notches Into the curved edge and that will just help make it lay flat When we go to turn it right side out So I like to use a chopstick or a knitting needle when I can’t get my fingers into the places. I want them to go So now after I’ve pressed that I’m just going to do a top stitch Just to make it look prettier and it helps keep it nice and folded and now I’m going to work on my straps so like I said before if you wanted to use a thicker ribbon, you could totally just skip this part, but if not, We’re going to take the long pieces and fold them length ways. And then Sew along the edges with a quarter of an inch seam allowance and then we’re going to flip them right sides out and Then we will do a top stitch on either side just to make it look like a strap So now I’m going to start placing my pieces that first One I’m going to work on is the crayon piece and I’m going to place that on the lining about two and three-quarters down and Then sew the bottom of it. So the part that’s closest to the center of the lining piece that’s just going to hold it in place and then we are going to Create our little card slots So I just measured from the center and measured one inch from the center away Should leave you about a half an inch on either side and then we will sew all those little slots after that, we’re going to take our slip pockets and then Place those with large one first and then the smaller one that would be fold on the inside get your Oliver raw edges are lined up and then we will use our Straps, my straps are a little long right now. So just disregard that they will to be the correct length in the pattern and I’m just going to place those and then place my little tabby piece in between one of these straps So just a little revision I am going to put the little tab piece on the side that has a slit pockets not where the crayon slots were So just disregard where I put it and put it on the other side so then I just put the last piece on top and Then I saw it all the way around leaving a gap in between The strap that didn’t have the little tab piece now. I’m going to flip the whole thing right side out And then I’ll poke up the corners with my chopstick and then press So after that Then you can just close up the little hole that’s in between the straps if you want to do a top stitch You can do that or you can do an invisible stitch or a ladder stitch I will have a video linked down below if you have never done that before but a top stitch will do it just fine Especially if you’re using a matching thread and it will be hidden with a tab once it’s closed I didn’t show you how I put on the closure because I did snaps but if you want to do velcro then of course just sew on a piece of velcro on to the tab and then close the bag and then see where it falls and then you can put the other piece of velcro on the Actual body of the bag and you might need to move the slip pocket out of the way just so that you can show it But it’s a lot easier to do that on that side That’s why I ended up moving where I put the tab piece So I will have more instructions and photos over at my blog so if you have any difficulty following this video you can go over there and check out the pictures and When you’re over there, you can check out some of my other crayon storage tutorials I made a little art folio and then also some little crayon and Pencil crayon rolls, so go over there.
