Japanese Fabric Panel Coloring Pouch

Nov 14, 2012
Pin It Becca sent me a few scraps from Sew Me A Song to play with.  When I first saw this Japanese print, I knew immediately I wanted to make something for Mr. G (aka the middle son or wild card).  The fabric is Daiwabo Japan Tip Top Car Panel by Fumika Oishi.  I love it!  I decided to make a coloring pouch since he is really getting into learning to write his letters.
There are so many fun details included in the panel.  I cut this portion of the panel to make a little strap for him to wrap around his wrist.  I was so excited about it, I forgot to top stitch the strap.  I don't think he noticed....
The inside lining of the pouch is a fun plaid with cars and other traffic items scattered about.  The plaid is just dark enough to hide all the crayon and marker marks that will end up inside.
Here is the back.  Since this fabric is off white and my son only 3, I decided to use iron-on vinyl to protect the pouch.  If you missed it, you can read my review of this product here.
Here is what the panel looks like from selvage to selvage.

These types of panels are so much fun!  I have a couple others from Japan that I am going to have to make a fun project out of.  There are so many possibilities of cute things to make with them.

You can find this print at Sew Me A Song.
