Simple instructions and lovely color photos. This little tote makes a unique birthday or holiday gift. Holds 8 crayons and up to a 6”x8” pad of paper. Plus an extra pocket for stickers or notes. Personalize it with an embroidery machine or machine appliqué. Perfect for keeping in the car – my kids use theirs on every car ride. Take it to the restaurant so your kids don’t have to use those questionable restaurant crayons (who knows what is lurking on those!). Bring it to Grandma’s house, camping, outdoors – kids love these!

Here is what some of my customers have had to say about the Artista Tote!
“Love this pattern! I can't wait to make more =)”
“Made one as soon as I got the pattern, easy to follow and turned out wonderful.”
“Wow! This looks like a Great Pattern. I can't wait to get started. Thank you for the prompt service.”
“Love the pattern. Very simple.”
Not for small children as crayons can break and be choking hazards. Although I do not see any warning on this particular box of crayons, I would recommend ages 3+ to be safe. Thanks!

Nieces love this. Great pattern! Instructions were great with photos!
i got great reviews on my daughters
Grand Daughter carries this one everywhere! We loved making this one!
These instructions are very well presented...easy to make and my Granddaughters just love their Totes. However, the ink in the instructions needs to be make a bit darker...the instructions can't be read unless you are right on top of them. Otherwise, I think this project is great...and I'm on my way in to my craft room to sew yet another Tote...Thank you, and have a GREAT day !!!!!
Great pattern! Instructions were great with photos! Mine came out perfectly - I embroidered my daughter's name across the middle strip and it looks great for a personalized gift!
I love this pattern. The directions are very good and it comes together quickly. I made it 1" taller because the pad of paper that we already had was 6x9. I made one for my daughter and embroidered her name on the middle strip in the front. We were invited to a 3 year old's birthday party and I am going to make him this for his gift. It is a great way to use up leftover scraps of fabric.
Very easy and easy to adjust to make larger. It made an excellent, inexpensive, and much appreciated birthday present.
