One of my all-time favorite pictures--he looks so much like his daddy at this age*sigh* What good is it having a grandma who sews, if she doesn't actually sew something for your pencils and markers??
I finally took care of the situation and made him this little zippered pouch with a see-through window. And added some new pencils and erasers. I used a pattern from here ( search for Peek-A-Boo Bag). It took awhile to figure out some of the steps, but it turned out really well.He's happy with it. And that's all that counts.
