Tackle It Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

Janice created Tackle It Tuesday back in 2006 over at 5minutesformom.com to help her dig herself out of a houseful of clutter. This is how it works

Each week on Tuesday, we are posting before and after pictures of a project or trouble area that we tackled this week. The project can be little or big – whatever you want.
Basically, Tackle It Tuesday is about giving ourselves incentive, deadlines and satisfaction in getting our household tasks done.
(It doesn’t even have to be housework… just whatever is on your To Do list.)

I thought this was a great idea and could really use some incentive to help get some projects done.

For today's tackle I am working on turning this

into these so that I can start listing them in my Etsy shop.

They are called a Child's Coloring Wallet and they are the perfect size to keep in a diaper bag or purse for when you are on the go and need to keep little hands busy. They would also make a great gift for your special little one. They will come with 8 crayons and I will be finishing it off with a pad of paper.

You can check out my shop here and I will have these listed in the next couple of days and you will be able to see the different fabric choices.

Is there something you need to tackle. Well go visit Janice over 5M4M to join in.


  1. Wow, what a great idea!!! Just wondering, where do you get such awesome fabric from. I live in Japan and want to find some kid friendly fabric to make my little girl and boys some fun clothes for the summer here??

  2. I got some of it from Wal-Mart and some I ordered off of eBay but I got most of it from www.jandofabrics.com under the Novelty Fabric section but I don't know if they would ship to Japan or not. If anyone else knows of other good places to get child friendly fabric please leave me a comment
