Completed 5 of these Coloring Totes today as Christmas presents.
The front crayon slots are each an inch wide.
I used the Crayola Twist Up short crayons.
Inside will be a coloring book and toy.
The denim is from skirts and dresses

so there won't be strings.

Next project is a flannel doll quilt.

Back to the sewing machine!

Linking up with Porch Swing Quilts.
