I'm always on the lookout for things to make for my son. It's so easy to make cute dresses and little ruffle pants for my daughter, but a little harder to find something to sew for an almost 5 year old boy.
I've seen so many of these crayon roll thingys on etsy and thought I'd give it a try. I found this great tutorial from Skip to My Lou.
I used baseball fabric for the front and on the inside is the same baseball fabric and red and white polka dots. I skipped the rickrack since I thought it was a little too girly for my little guy. It turned out really well and the directions were really easy to follow. And I have to say, I was a little leary that the crayons would stay in their little pockets when it was all rolled up. Even with a lot of shaking, those crayons didn't move! I was very impressed! Now I don't have to search the black hole that is the bottom of my purse for crayons when we're at a restaurant or the doctor's office. Yipee!
All rolled up!
