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.
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 up 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!)
Love those! I made a little notebook cozy that fits crayons and a little notepad all in one. So fun to make!!!
Laura @ Just For Love says
Do you think this is possible without sewing (glue or hem tape)??
These are adorable and my daughter has been BEGGING me for one, but I can not sew :O)
Very cute! I love the little ruffle notepad!

What a great idea. I can keep one in my purse so I will always have something for my little one to do when we are out and he gets bored. Thanks for sharing.
