a new take on the crayon roll.

how to sew a crayon roll So with the school sales, crayons are cheap! 25 cents cheap. and I probably bought my weight in them. We are big fans of the crayon roll–but I came up with a new twist. 012
a crayon roll with a little tablet to color.
I got these tablets at walgreens 6 for $1. can’t beat that
and made a basic crayon roll

start with some fabric

fold down the top section and sew.
turn it right side out….iron
iron the remaining edges upĀ  just a half inch
then sew along the bottom folded edge.
then take it up about 2/3 of the way
add your elastic for the closure and then sew all the way around.
take a measuring tape and pins
and measure how far apart you want the crayons.
make sure you leave plenty of room for the tablet.
to cover the tablet…i just used hot glue and followed THESE instructions
fill with crayons and tablet and roll up THEN sew on your button
I ended up making a whole slew of them
(I made more than this even….but these are the ones I’m selling on ETSY!)
