Happy Birthday Sewing

This week was all about birthday gifts. Today is my niece's 2nd birthday and my brother's girlfriend's birthday. Happy Birthday Callie & Whitney!!!!

Harper also had a birthday party on Saturday she attended for a classmate. I decided to make a combination of my zippy art purse and composition notebook cover.
Next time I think I will add the handles. It really does make it eaasy to carry around.

It's basically a larger version of the zippy art purse with no handles. Here are the measurements in case anyone is interested.
11.5" x 17"- 1 exterior piece, 1 interior piece, 1 piece of flannel
11.5" x 14"- inside pocket (the one above was a little too small so this measurement makes the pocket larger)
11.5" x 4"- top of zipper
11.5" x 12- bottom of zipper
If you want to make the compostion cover like this one, just make two inside pockets and disregard the zipper pocket measurements.
This is what I made for my sweet little niece. It is a bear backpack.
Inside view.
I made this little pouch to match the purse I made for Whitney for graduation. Instead of interfacing, I attached the flannel piece to the exterior piece with lines of sewing to make a quilted look. It added just enough body so that it is not too flinsy or too stiff.

I used the tutorial by Noodlehead for the pouch.
Happy Crafty Tuesday everyone.

I am linking up to this post for the Tea Rose Home Link Party.

I LOVE the zippy art case/notebook cover! I carry a little pencil bag in my purse with crayons and folded piece of paper in it. You never know when you're going to need a distraction!

Thanks for the dimensions on the notebook cover! I might make some of those - they are handy gifts for the journal/diary writing crowd that Em is now hanging with!

And the backpack and pouch! They are great...I am so itching to get back into my room!
