I’ve sewn those cases for my two little ones. It’s based on a project in the Spring 2010 issue of the Stitch magazine. For the first pouch (brown one), I’ve modified the appliques a bit. On one side, I put the mushroom appliques. On the other side, I put the hedgehog with a slightly different shape with a mushroom instead of flowers. For the second case, I felt it didn’t need appliques because of the owls in the fabric print. The most interesting part in doing this project was to see my 3 year old son’s excitement as I was realizing it. The younger one (16 months) didn’t understand much. But still, he was happy to carry on his crayons in his pouch when I gave him today!
