I could definitely make a bunch of these for the little ones in my life. Just think, I could be fueling the fire for the next Picasso!

YES! MINE! I MUST WIN THIS!
If not I must get this pattern. My 3.5 year old daughter LOVES art. I actually just bought her a good quality sketchbook and handed over my Prismacolor pencils, with the stipulation that she treat them well. I explained to my hubby that even if I have to buy a new set every year, it's worth it. I'm thinking of getting her some really nice paints and such as well.

I am pretty sure that this would MAGICALLY make my little artists clean up after themselves! It would be like putting a PERFECTLY CUTE PUZZLE together!

What a wonderful little tote. I don't know if I could whip it up by Easter but it sure would make a great birthday gift filled to the brim with goodies of course πŸ™‚

Why just for crafts- I think all of my fellow teacher girls would LOVE to have a tote like this to keep all of their goodies in one spot, easy to take home each day! What a great idea!!! Perfect to make for Teacher Appreciation Week coming the first week in May- I bet I could whip up a couple in time πŸ™‚

My 3yr old is always pestering me…"Mom, I need a page! Open my color box, please! A page, mom!!" This is perfect. All the pages and colors are right there at her fingertips. Boom. We BOTH need this one!

I'd love to whip up a couple of these to hold S's copious amounts of art supplies…but who am I kidding? If I make them, they'll hold Polly Pockets. The art supplies will stay in the Bonne Maman jars. Either way, I'd love to whip up a couple of them πŸ™‚

Very clever! And I love the fabric choice- bright and active! I can also imagine this is a print suitable for a little man. So fun!

Mommy, err, I mean my little artists need this!

**Supplies from the craft store: $20
**Gas to get to the craft store: an arm, a leg, possibly both depending on gas prices that day
**Organized art supplies: PRICELESS!!!

I LOVE Gingercake!!! I got her duffel bag (which I'm currently using) pattern for Christmas and it's fantastic! My zipper ended up a bit off centered but I still love my bag!

So, can I be cheesy for a sec and say I tote-ally want this?! Seriously, I have a butt-load of new fabric from Fabricworm that is just screaming to be made into something cute….

I need this pattern in my life! My 3 year old is quite the Picasso and this would give her a really cool place to store all of her supplies!!
Also, I'm a kindergarten teacher and my 21 students would love this! I'm imagining that each table would have one for art time and it would keep the mess to a minimal and everyone at the table would be able to find what they need..without the usual fussing and fighting! πŸ˜‰

Can't think of anything clever to say, so I'll just do what my 5 month old does and scream, because I want this pattern. AHHHHHHHH! Can you hear me? Maybe if I scream LOUDER!!!! Always works in our house… πŸ™‚

With 5 artist daughters, this would be a dream come true for them. They could take all of their stuff with us wherever we go.

My 3 yr old daughter E LOVES art of any kind… and loves to have her own bags, carrying her stuff herself. She wants to be a mommy and so is always copying whatever I'm doing around the house.

This is adorable! And might keep my six year old artist organized. He was stressing the other day about not knowing what he wants to be when he grows up (at 6!).

In fact, the other day my 3 year old hurt himself and was crying. When the 6 year old tried to help him, he was rebuffed. Undeterred, he patted my 3 year old and said, "You should let me help. I may be a doctor someday."

Not sure I should push artist over doctor, but an artistic doctor never hurt anyone, right?

Oh me oh my! So cute! This would be so much fun to make for my sweet girl. Now I just need to get myself a sewing machine! πŸ˜‰ (and win the contest, of course!)

I would love my daughter to learn the art of digging through a bag to find things at a young age. Although this one looks pretty organized it may not be good practice. What a cute pattern.

Love, love, love it!!! Look at all the pockets!!!! So many options!!! I've got to have this!!! I hope I win!!! My daughter's already have art bags, but since I make hair bows and other hair accessories they could sooo use one of these for in the bathroom!!!

What an awesome gift idea for so many people. I could use it as a school bag for me or the kids, organize my kids crafts and or any other craft. It would be a great lunch bag too. Especially good when travelling in the car or long distance.
We need this to cheer us up. In one week our house has had pneumonia, tonsilitis and strepthroat.

I love the pattern, but I've got to say, crayons always trigger a flashback for me. I flashback to my 3 year old self who decided to help mommy paint the living room with my crayons while she was sleeping.
My new sister in law is an elementary school teacher, and I'd love to make this for her! Ta Ta For Now

I love that pattern! I loved art as a kid and still do! I started out with coloring, moved to canvas painting, and now have added watercolors and sewing into my mix. I hope my girl loves arts and crafts as she gets older and would love to make this for her so we can take our art supplies to the beach (or other art inspiring locations) and draw or paint.

I'm thinking this art caddy would be great for poppy but if you used oilcloth l wonder if it would be a great addition in the veggie patch to hold my gardening tools, sketchbook, seeds and gloves. Hmmmm, such ideas. It's a great looking bag. Xx
