I found this awesome pattern on CraftApple. It was SO fun. These kids "artists case" are sure to be a hit with my three. And the reason I know is that I made them for our neighbor friends and Stephen said "wow, mom, Kate and Sarah are SO lucky." :) Can't wait till they open them tomorrow.
It's a little hard to see, but I monogramed Clara's initial the lower right corner.
Abbie's has her initial in the top, middle.
And Stephen, my baseball fan, was a little tricky. I wanted his to look like a guys so I made a patch with a TC (for the MN twins) and put it in the middle. That was a TON of work, but really fun to learn how to do. I also used suede shoelaces for the closure rather than the grossgrain ribbon I used on the girls.
