Michelle, at Creative Blonde posted a great pattern for making a reading pouch and book mark.
When I was with my granddaughter, I had her pick out fat quarters for a secret project I would be making her. She chose two different owl fabrics and two linings.
I followed the instructions and made one bag according to the measurements given for a book.
My granddaughter loves to read, so this will be perfect. At her Meet the Teacher Night, I was happy to hear that the teacher will be focusing on writing. This was music to my ears! My granddaughter also loves to write stories.
So, I adapted the measurements to make a pouch to hold a composition book. It will also hold a story starter flip book.
Thank you, Michelle, for such a great pattern.
Book Bag

I ordered Dog Diaries by Betsy Byers to place in the beige owl book bag.
Writing Bag

A composition book fits perfectly inside this bag, along with a Magic Writing Pencil.

This is the Story Starter flip book I ordered.
