Crafturday- Crayon/Pencil Roll

So here's a little thing I made for a child I'm related to for Christmas, a little crayon roll. The child is my husband's cousin, a very bright and creative girl who loves to do art. I got the pattern from Better Homes & Gardens; it was so easy, just a matter of quilting and binding a main fabric, lining and pocket, and making a little tie to hold it together. Here's the roll on the inside:

The size is designed to hold markers or pencils but you can make it any size you want. It could hold brushes for painting or makeup, chalk, crayons, or what-have-you.  I've already started making a second one for myself as a sewing organizer, with a section for my embroidery scissors, and I'm tempted to make more, to sell or give as gifts.

I had so much fun making this little guy. I included a set of colored pens and two big blank books, upcycled from a book on science for kids and a book on horses. I hope my little cousin-in-law has lots of fun with it! What do you think?

Totally adorable -- any child would love to get this. The material is fabulous as well. Nice job Marie.

Very cute - I love the fabric! You could put snaps at the top and make a jewelry roll from that pattern.

Adorable! And I really like the fabric you picked too! Think this would be a big hit if you gave it as a gift!
