My son is a HUGE robot fanatic. Ever since he saw Real Steel and Transformers, he is just obsessed. So when he asked me to make him a bag for his alphabet magnets, I knew I had to use some robot fabric.

We got him this Crayola easel for Christmas two years ago and he'd "misplaced" all the magnets that it came with. So grandma came to the rescue and bought him a new pack of jumbo letters and numbers. This time, I immediately made him a drawstring pouch for safekeeping, using Jeni's adorable lined bag pattern. I used the snack bag size for this project but I'm dying to find an excuse to try the tiny bag size. It looks adorable!

Fabrics used:
Caleb Gray- Robot Factory
Momo for Moda- Just Wing It
American Jane- Punctuation

Instead of using fabric for the ties, I used twill ribbon in a yellow measuring tape print. So cute! The bag fits perfectly in the easel baskets. I just love the size of it.

Linking up to these parties. Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy your weekend!
