Leap Pad Wall Hanging Tote Bag

This year Good old St. Nick brought our little one a leapfrog Leap pad. This past summer I had won a $40.00 Gift Certificate to Sew Fresh Fabrics from a giveaway sponsored by Plum and June. I used my Certificate to purchase a half yard of 123-abc-by-alexander-henry, a half yard bundle of Woodlands Inspired Kona Bundle, and a charm pack of Lucy's Crab Shack by Sweetwater for Moda
that I will use for a separate project. 

So I wanted to share what I made with the abc fabric and some of the Kona. I wanted something to help keep his new toy organized and off the floor. For the most part when I sew I never have a pattern or a template I just make it up as I go along.

 I knew that I wanted some sort of close able pocket. I had never sewn in a zipper before so I took a piece of scrap fabric I had laying around and practiced first. I actually like the little pencil bag I mad so much that I stuffed some new crayons in it and used it as a stocking stuffer. 

Once again I was able to use my new bias tape maker for the cartridge holder. 

 Then I just used some buttons as some extra embellishments.

I was so happy to have had a chance to make something like this for our little guy. I hope you all have a great holiday season. 

Happy Crafting

As I sit here and dust off the cobwebs to my tiny ghost town of a blog, I am excited to make a fresh start and slowly get back to what...
