This is a pattern, written and designed by me, that you are sure to love! It is simple and straightforward. You will need to be able to understand very basic sewing directions. It is full of bright bright pictures, easy to follow instructions, and pattern pieces for easy assembly.
The Crayon Art Folio is a wonderful way to get your favorite young artist organized and excited about coloring and artwork. My kids use them at home and in the car. This is the perfect gift for a long car ride- add themed stickers to the beach or the mountains and you are set to go!
It fits 12 crayons and a 5" x 8" pad of white paper. There is also a third pocket for stickers, scissors, or other artsy accessories!
The crayon folio is 8 3/4" wide by 6 1/2" tall when closed. It features a velcro closure for easy opening and closing and grosgrain ribbon (or fabric) handles for carrying around and looking cute.
NEW! Now the crayon art folio pattern also includes the Mini Art Folio instructions! This mini folio is half the size of the regular folio- perfect for keeping in your purse or as party favors. It also is quick and easy.

Hi! I am Virginia Lindsay, creator of Gingercake Patterns and the blog Gingercake. I started sewing again (like many of you!) when my kids were new and I was spending more time at home while they were napping and playing. I loved all the bright and beautiful fabrics available and I became addicted to searching for new projects all the time! I eventually found myself with many ideas of my own and I loved the process of taking that idea and turning it into a perfected pattern. I wanted to create items that were useful and thoughtful for our busy lives. Since most of us already have an almost full schedule, a day spent sewing is such a treat and I wanted to create a line of patterns would be a treat for the sewer and the person she is sewing for. My favorite feedback from people who bought a Gingercake pattern is not only "we use this all the time!" but also, "i had so much fun making this!" We all know that we can buy something cute at the big box store, but creating a handmade gift is not only about who is getting the gift but about how much you enjoyed your time spent sewing.
