Crayon Roll Tutorial
I have seen these on many blogs and have always wanted to have a go at making one. So yesterday I found some spare scrap bright fabric which I thought would be great for this project.
Recognise the fabric? This was from the remnants of the sun lounger that I recovered for my mum. Link here: sun-lounger-cushion-cover
Supplies needed are:
3 pieces of fabric (15 inches by 5 inches)
Elastic (I used a hairband)
Below are the instructions for how I made this crayon roll.
1) Cut out 3 pieces of fabric (15 inches by 5 inches)
3) I marked with pins (or use pen) 2 inches spaces where to sew straight lines down to make the individual crayon pockets. Sew on marked lines making sure that you stitch extra at the openings.
6) Turn the fabric inside out, then iron all edges flat. Place an elastic band into the space which was open for turning, then stitch all around the fabric edge, securing fabric.
7) Then place the crayons into the crayon roll (see photo below)
Now you have a lovely gift for some lucky child!
This was actually much easier than I thought, and took under and hour to complete. I will definitely be making these again. It is a great way to use up scraps, I used the same fabric for this tutorial, but you can mix and match the fabrics.
