Preschool Busy Bag

I realized that I forgot to post what I made for my Preschool Busy Bag group!  Whoops!  That’s what happens during finals week.  My brain is full of Environmental Technology. Heh.

I made small chalkboard mats… 

They have about a 6 1/2 by 8 inch drawing space and a little pocket for putting chalk in.




They also roll up and tie for easy storage or tossing in a bag to take along to play with.


I used this fun penguin fabric that I had on hand.  I bought the chalkboard fabric in January to make one of these for Bennett.  I over bought, so I was glad to be able to use some more of it up!




It looks like I used a binding, but it is just the backing fabric folded over in a roll seam with mitered corners.

    How did you make them? They are so adorable and I know I can use them with my nieces and nephews!

    There is a type of fabric called Chalkboard fabric. You can get it at JoAnn Fabrics. I just backed it in fun fabric that I folded over to the front side and sewed it all together. Maybe that will be my next tutorial. :)
