I have been a subscriber ever since & so glad that she is here today to share a super cute tutorial
Hello! I’m Vanessa and I’m joining in from my blog, Little Big Girl Studio. Thanks so much to Mayya for having me be a part of Inspire to Create. I was inspired to give sewing another try when my daughter turned 1. That was February of 2009 and I’ve been sewing ever since. I’ve added blogging and an Etsy shop since then as well. Sewing is a stress reliever for me and a great way to work out my creative energy. I pretty much learned everything I know about sewing from all the awesome craft/sewing bloggers out there who are willing to share their know-how. I hope some of you out there will find my tutorial useful and that maybe you’ll learn something new!

Although I love creating sewing tutorials, sometimes I need a little kick in the pants motivation to get started and this was just what I needed! I’ve had a stack of 10 packs of color pencils sitting in my sewing room for months now. I bought them on clearance (25 cents a pack!) without a clue as to what I was going to use them for. So, I set out to come up with something both fun and practical that would let me use up some of those pencils!

This art journal is perfect for just about anyone who likes to draw or write on the go. Get creative and personalize it. It has several pockets for holding a paper pad, lots of pens and pencils, and also for stashing artwork, notes, stickers, etc. I used elastic as the closures for both the pencil pocket flap and the art journal itself.

Supplies needed:

*fabric (1/2 yard or so of various prints)
*Heavyweight fusible interfacing (Craftfuse)
*1/2 inch elastic
*cotton batting
*size 16 or 18 needle
*rotary cutter/mat/ruler
*hand sewing needle
*5 x 8 inch paper pad

Skill Level: Advanced (or Adventurous) Beginner and up

Stop by my blog and say hello. I’d love to meet you!
