Our dear friends, Bill and Summer just recently moved away from us to start a new church in Valparaiso. (Check the Rolling Hills Vineyard out here!) Before they left, I wanted to make something special for their 4 girls. Here's what I came up with: coloring portfolios! I thought they'd be great for the road trip there. I used this tutorial and her measurements were perfect. This was an awesome fabric stash buster as I didn't allow myself to by any new fabric for the girl's books.

Of course, while I was at it. . .I had to make one for Owen. I did have to buy him some new fabric. :)
For I's and M's books, I used fabric left over from a set of big sister/big brother shirts I made for Dawn.
And for L's and O's books, I used fabric my mom gave me that was leftover from the gorgeous quilt she made me.
All in all, a very fun project to do. Although I would maybe recommend not sewing 5 at once. It got a little tedious towards the end. Of course, that could just be because I have project ADD and get bored doing the same thing over and over.
