Color Book Art Storage (3 sizes) sewing pattern

This is perhaps the greatest art, pencil, pen, and marker storage that you can sew. It’s an artist’s dream and the ultimate in craft storage. Sew this for yourself, for a child, or for a friend who loves arts and crafts.

These cases are perfect for the colorist, art lover, or anyone that loves cases and books. It’s not often a sewing pattern comes along that makes you say “Oh, wow!” but this one certainly has that wow factor and is the sort of sewing project you can really get your teeth into and be super proud of.

There are three sizes of Color Book in the same sewing pattern. The small will hold 48 colored pencils, the medium 72 colored pencils and the large is for the serious collector with 120 colored pencils. The designer has also included a BONUS book that will hold those thick Pro-markers that everyone loves.

Every colorist/artist will love these books. You can personalize them to meet your creative needs!
