project #3 On The Go Craft Case
Supplies: Briefcases, fabric + felt, pretty papers, paint, embellishments.
1. To make a crochet hook/pens & markers pocket:
Fold a piece of felt in half and sew lines through it, varying widths(for different size hooks/or markers.)
Also so 2 small scraps of ribbon to the 2 ends so that you can roll up the pocket and tie it.
For a scissor/misc tools pocket:
Sew a piece of fabric in half (right sides together, leaving the top open) and flip right side out. I also sewed a felt scallop on the edge for an added effect.
2. decorate the inside of your briefcase with pretty papers. Decoupage works really well for this, but you can also just use any strong glue.
Attach pockets to the front of the briefcase folders. I recommend a strong glue, because trying to sew through the leather is somewhat hard.
