Crayon Roll

Making a crayon roll has been on my to-do list since before I was even a parent.  Kept thinking I might make one for my nieces or nephew.  Like so many other good intentions, it hit the back burner.  Then a few weeks ago, two of my mommy friends made some (check out Allison's awesome froggy roll) so, naturally, I had to do it too!  :D

Here's the completed roll:


Open and full of crayons:

The outside (loving this cute fabric!):

I bought the fabrics on Etsy.  I was so excited when they showed up later that week that I sewed the roll that night.  I followed this tutorial at the Pleated Poppy.

Supplies: cotton fabrics; flannel; thread; hair elastic; Making Memories button (yes, I raided my scrapbooking stash for this!)

  3. These are so great and I really like the fabrics you have used. I've been wanting to make one of these forever but for my paintbrushes and one for my drawing pencils for when I'm on the go.
