One of the pages that I saw and loved was the crayon and paper pad page from The Long Thread. I liked this idea because it would encourage the child’s imagination to create something.
I also liked this idea because it seemed very simple and straight forward, which will be nice since most of the other pages I want to make require a bit more work.
I took an adorable fat quarter that I got from Len’s Mills and cut it to a width of 8 ½”. I then cut out three, 2 ½” strips, which will be used to hold crayons, and one 6” piece that will be used to hold the paper pad.
I positioned the three strips to one page and sewed them on used a blue thread and a zigzag stitch, to make it a bit more fun for a young boy.
On a second page, mirror image to the first, I attached the paper pad pocket, again using the blue thread and zigzag stitch.
I purchased a small pack of crayons and a pad of paper, and this double page was complete.
