An arts and crafts bag for kids and adults


Does your child’s art area look like a big mess? Not very inspiring for a young artist! I got so tired of picking all those papers and trying to find the scissors for the 100th time that I designed this cute tote to help them get organized.

The art caddy measures 8.5″ x 5.5″ x 10″. It is constructed of several layers of interfacing and batting. It is sturdy and yet flexible to fit all sorts of items. It has a crayon pocket that fits up to 18 crayons. There are 7 additional pockets to organize all your odds and ends. The inside is spacious and sturdy to hold a few folders or a bunch of coloring books.

Another nice feature of this pattern is that you can make one for your kids and then make one for yourself and your crafts! It also makes a beautiful gift for your favorite artist, knitter or crafter – just fill it up with art essentials and you are ready to go!

All of my patterns are designed for beginning to advanced sewers. You can make this as simple or complicated as you like.

Sizing info:

The art caddy measures 8.5″ x 5.5″ x 10″.
