Last week we took apart a moving box, got out painter's tape, mixed up some tempura paints (to be really permanent, acrylic paint would be a better choice - I don't plan on washing the finished result much but it is still washable if need be!), got out some scrap unbleached canvas fabric, and let our creative juices flow!

Initially, I planned to make zippered pouches but I didn't have the zippers I thought I had laying around so I went for a simple drawstring bag instead with natural cotton ribbon.
|The perfect little pouch for collecting treasures.|
A fun way to display artwork and it is functional!
Using a fabric marker write child's name or initials on the bottom with the date!
Use it as an activity bag for child to put toys in for a rode trip. Whatever fits in the bag, may come on the trip!
|Twigs. Stones. Leaves.|
|The stiffness of the painted canvas plus the boxed corners help the bag stand on its own.|
|The perfect size.|
