D.I.Y. Crayon Roll

You need 3 rectangles 18″ x 6″.  One for the outside, one for the inside and one for the crayon pockets.  I also used a piece of interfacing the same size for this one, but I made another one using batting instead of interfacing and that worked well also.

Cost: $10 (Without Tools)

Iron your interfacing to the wrong side of the outside piece of fabric.

Decide which piece is your pocket fabric and iron that in half, wrong sides facing then align the unfolded edge with the bottom of the lining piece:

Sew straight lines 1″ apart to attach the pocket piece to the lining piece.

Then cut your threads.

Take a length of ribbon (about 18″ is nice and long) and fold it in half. Sew the folded edge onto the center of one side of your crayon roll, on the top edge with the length of ribbon to the inside:

Take your outside piece and pin it on top so right sides are facing:

Sew in place all the way around, leaving a 3″ hole for turning, back stitching at the beginning and end:

Reach in the hole and grab the ribbon and pull it to turn right side out:

Push out the seams and corners and iron it flat:

Top stitch all the way around at the edge (this will close your turning hole) and stuff with crayons:

Roll it up and tie a bow!
