More Gifts for Boys

I've been meaning to make a crayon and coloring book carrier for my older son for a while now. I couldn't find a tutorial or directions, so I just plunged in. It turned out well in that everything fits and works, but there a few things I'd do differently next time.

It needs interfacing or maybe even innerfuse for the front cover. It needs to be a little stiffer there. The back is stiff because of the notebook, but the front sags a bit and the crayon shapes show through. No biggy, but it would be nice if it looked more notebook like.
Next, some easy felt beanbags. I filled mine with lentils.
