Colour Pencil/Crayon Roll



Oh wow, I actually started and finished my first Crayon roll for my niece.
The tutorial is wonderfully published at Little Munchkins and it was sooo easy to make.
How could I botch it up, you say? Well, see the white Ric Rac on top?
That's to hide the selvedge that I included on the inside fabric. D'oH.

I thought it was going to disappear within the seam allowance but it didn't. I think the ribbon could have been shorter so if you're out of the full 40cm ribbon, don't worry, it goes around twice, so even if you had 30cm that would be fine.

Anyway, moving on, I really love how easy and pretty this project was. I have to make another one for my other niece. Lucky for me the Crayola Twistables were on sale at Target so they were only like $4.49 each for 12. I had the fabric in my stash so it was a really inexpensive gift.I used a blue/white dot on the outside and a pretty flower fabric for the pocket from Spotlight.

There should be more completed gifts in the upcoming weeks.
We're nearing December already, yikes!

Stand by...

    I love the fabrics you chose and it looks so pretty! I wouldn't have know about the selvedge at the top and I do think the ric rac adds a lovely touch.
