Crayon Rolls

I got a new sewing machine this weekend (which I am absolutely IN LOVE with!!) and my very first project was these crayon roll-ups. I've made three so far - one for Ella, one for my nephew Lachlan and one for my nephew Jordan. They were so much fun to make, I've been trying to think of someone else who'd like one just so I have an excuse to make more =p I was thinking of making one for Jayden but he is still very much in the 'crayons are fun to eat!' stage.

This one is Ella's. This is the first one I made and it's my favourite so far! The pink fabric that I used for the back is a heavyweight canvas type fabric so it's nice and sturdy. I bought that fabric in a fat quarter and I'm amazed at how long it's lasted. This is my 3rd sewing project with it and I still have some left.

All rolled up!
This one is for Jordan. The fabric that I used for this is leftover from when my sister made curtains for Lachlan and Jordan's playroom so Jordan's crayon roll will match the playroom curtains =p

I haven't bought any crayons yet so some of Ella's pencils are filling in for me for the time being.

This one is Lachlan's, and again the fabric is leftover from my sister making curtains. I think those curtains are in Lachlan's bedroom. When my sister gave me her fabric scraps I don't think she was expecting to get it back in another form lol.


  1. Ooh these look fantastic!!!

    PS- what happened to your layout?!

  2. Thanks :) I got bored of my layout and felt like a change but then I couldn't be bothered customising it so I just randomly picked a default layout and this is it!

  3. Beautiful! And woohoo for a new sewing machine!
