Crayon Roll Tutorial

Written and photographed by Katie of Made to Be a Momma

I am so excited to be here today at Kelly’s place! She is the sweetest right?! I am even more excited to be a part of her contributing team!  For my first post here, I wanted to show you all this SUPER easy crayon roll tutorial.  They are perfect to pop in the purse and have to keep the kiddos busy while your at the store, doctors office, restaurants…anywhere where the kids need to be distracted! They are perfect for the kids in school to carry around in their backpacks too!
Crayon Roll Tutorial

You will need two pieces of fabric 5 X 16 1/2 inches (for the outside and inside), one 6 X 16 1/2 inch piece of fabric folded in half lengthwise and pressed (for the pocket), one piece of lightweight fusible interfacing 5 X 16 1/2 inches,  30in. piece of ribbon, and Crayons ( this holds about 16).

Line up the bottom edges of the folded pocket piece and the piece with interfacing.  Starting over from the edge 1 1/4 inches, measure 1 inch and place a pin ( this is where you will sew your parallel lines to create the slot for your crayons)  Backstitch at the top to reinforce.

Place your remaining fabric piece on top of your piece with the pocket. ( Right sides–pretty sides together) Fold your ribbon in half and sandwich in between the two layers.

Sew around the edges with a 1/4 in. seam, leaving a small opening for turning at the bottom. Turn right side out and press.

Press your opening closed and top stitch around edges.
