DIY Craft Hacks

This week’s craft hack is Sonali Kulkarni’s idea- Sonali is a crafter by passion, who has converted that into her profession. She joined the energetic KidEngage team in February 2016. She takes care of the kids’ interests with a ‘hard to miss’ infectious smile during the various workshops while encouraging them to read and learn.

Let’s craft a felt pouch for your mobile and carry your phone in some artsy style. P.S: Kids can also make and gift it to their parents or teachers! Read on for all the instructions.
