Today I'm sharing ANOTHER Crayon Roll Tutorial... yes, another one! This one is for anyone who is looking to use 3 different fabrics OR who doesn't have a large enough remnant scrap for the body in yesterdays tutorial!
Outside Body Piece (6"x13")
Inside Body Piece (6"x13")
Coordinating Pocket Piece (8"x13")
Coordinating Ribbon or Twine
Ruler (I prefer one with a clear grid)
Find your center, about 6.5" from the outside edge, and draw a line. Continue making lines, spacing them 1" apart. You'll end up with 10 lines (ignore my 12... opps). These lines will become your crayon pockets.
Lay your outside body piece on top of your inside body piece and pocket, you'll have a nice little sandwhich now -
bottom: Inside body piece right side up
middle: Pocket piece right side up
top: Outside body piece, right side down.
Pull the crayon holder right side out through the opening. Using a chopstick (or something pointy), stick your corners out so you have a nice shape. Iron the creases and all over so that it lays nicely, iron the opening with the edges folded in so that you can sew it closed and keep it looking nice.
Top stitch all around the crayon roll (I stitched about 1/8" from the edge). Make sure that you catch both sides of the opening so that its closed nicely.
Viola! A fun, playful crayon roll using scraps!
That's it for crayon rolls! phew! You could also take the same steps/tutorial and create a make up brush holder, paint brushes holder, scrapbook tool holder... so many options!
Have a great day! See you Friday for Zuc'n It Up! Zucchini Recipes!
