With sewing crafts, there are no more boring waiting rooms with nothing interesting to do. This art craft project creates activities for you to do anytime, anywhere.

What You'll Need:

  • 10x24-inch piece of muslin
  • Needle and thread
  • Yarn or string
  • Cardboard
  • Permanent markers or fabric paint

How to Make Waiting Room Kit:

Step 1: Hem the 2 short ends of muslin. Fold the muslin in half bringing the 2 hemmed ends together with the hems facing out.

Step 2: Cut a few small holes in the hemmed ends for the drawstring. Thread a piece of yarn or string through the holes and tie it in a knot. Sew the 2 side seams closed. Turn the bag inside out.

Step 3: Place a piece of cardboard inside the bag. Decorate the bag with permanent markers or fabric paint. Let the paint dry. Remove cardboard.

Step 4: Fill the bag with a notepad, colored pencils, crayons, scissors, a glue stick, a travel game, and a good book.
