I came across this site, Nested, which has the cutest sewing project to make. They are crayon pouches. You can alter the instructions easily enough to carry whatever you want. I decided these will be great birthday gifts for my niece and nephew coming up in August. Here is a pic of the ones I have made. My sewing skills could use some improvement, but I can't think of a better way to learn.
Here is a link to the instructions to make your own. INSTRUCTIONS
