Crayon Rolls

We have a few little cousins, nieces and nephews that we love to give gifts to. I found a tutorial for these cute crayon rolls and knew that they were going to be perfect! The tutorial shows a felt flower on the front, but I decided to change that as I had some very cute patches at home.
I made two of these exactly the same, one for my 3 year old nephew and the other for my 3 year old cousin. I love the monkey patch!!
This is the inside and I found ribbon that was perfect!! The ribbon is used to stabilize the top of the crayon pocket so that it doesn't stretch.
All ready to go!!
This one was for my 5 year old nephew. He loves all things dinosaur and green is his favorite color.
This is how it looks before it is rolled up.
Inside ribbon :o)
One for another 3 year old nephew. I forgot to take a picture of the inside of this one. This patch was slightly harder to stitch around than the others.
For my 10 year old niece. She is such a sweetie!! Her favorite colors are purple and pink and I thought this was just perfect for her!! Love the smiley face button!
The outside before it is folded.
For this one, we used gel pens instead of crayons. I think my niece will like these much better.
The ribbon that I used for this one.

Take a look at Tami's blog for more great crafting finishes by some very talented people!

OOOO sooo fabulous! I've been looking for a project to use up some of my scraps (I think I have a scrap problem lol). This looks perfect & easy for some of the girls I teach at church.
