Open Crayon RollI recently had a request from my great-niece for a crayon roll for her two-year-old.  Since I had made crayon rolls for our great-granddaughters a few years ago, I agreed to the request.  The only problem was that I didn’t remember how I made those crayon rolls.

Once again, Google to the rescue!  With one click of my mouse, I found a plethora of tutorials for crayon rolls.  The one I chose was a simple design that was intended to hold sixteen crayons.  My crayon roll holds fifteen crayons.  My bad.  Measuring has never been my strong suit.  Crayon Roll with Crayons

To get started, I chose a colorful cupcake print for my crayon roll.  Then, I used a coordinating stripe for the crayon pockets.  I’ll bet you’re wondering how I remembered to add one of my tags.  The tutorial actually reminded me to do so.  Crayon Roll with my Maker's Tag

This elastic hair tie makes a nice closure.  If you’re going to try this, be sure to use a quality hair tie.  The dollar store ones don’t hold up well in sewing projects.  I speak from experience here.

Don’t Forget About Safety:

Some tutorials suggested using a button with the hair tie to keep the crayon roll closed.  I opted not to use a button since buttons can be choking hazards for young children.  A button would render this project non-compliant with federal safety standards.  Rolled up crayon rollBird's Eye view of the crayon roll
If you’re looking for a quick and easy sewing project, I highly recommend trying one of these crayon rolls. This would make a cute gift for anyone who likes to color.

I hope it’s not too much of a problem to decide which one of Brinley’s sixteen crayons will be omitted from the roll.  If it were up to me, I’d toss the white one.  That’s how I roll!
