If you are a crafter or seamstress you know how nice it is to have all of your materials in one place and even better, if they can move with you! Together with my daughter, we have designed the Craft Buddy. It is an apron style organizer with several pockets for supplies and built in ear buds for your music! It even has its own pincushion. It also has a couple of pockets to store your IPod or MP3 player.

Step 1: Cut and Prepare Your Fabric
Cut a 42 X 15 piece of denim. Wash and dry to acheive the "frayed" look on all sides.
Step 2: Fold to find center
Fold the entire length of fabric to find center line. Mark with chalk(21 inches)
Step 3: Music Player Pockets
Construct a simple pocket and finish the top edge. (I chose to use bias tape). You'll need one small pocket and one middle sized pocket for different size music players.
Measuring up from the bottom of the long piece of denim, sew one pocket on at the 12 inch mark and the other one on at the 13 inch mark. Just eyeball it on the spacing but leave a space in between because later we will be adding a buttonhole here.
Another option: Sew one big pocket on all the way across the 15 inches and just sew a line down the middle to create two pockets.
Step 4: Buttonholes
Measuring up from the bottom, sew one buttonhole at the 12 1/2 inch mark and between the two pockets you just attached. The size of the buttonhole can vary, but just be sure it will fit the earbuds you choose to insert through! (The Craft Buddy I sell will come with a pair of earbuds).
Now, measuring down from the top of the material, sew another buttonhole at about the 18 1/2 - 19 inch mark.
I use a small piece of interfacing or stabilizer on the back where I sew the buttonhole...this makes your life a lot easier!
