Crayon Roll-Up

My little niece is turning 3 this week and I wanted to make her something extra special for her birthday.  

I LOVE making presents for my family.  I hope they enjoy receiving them as much as I enjoy making and giving them.

This little crayon roll seemed like the perfect answer to the question : What does every 3 year old need?  Something to carry their colored crayons in of course!

I used a super fun monkey fabric for the outside of the roll.  I figure it will hide stains well and it won't look as dirty as a cute pink or cream fabric.  Yay!  The inside is brown too with girly pink and red polka dots.

I used a vintage white button for the closure and a bright yellow hair elastic.  I hope she carries her crayons with her all over town now that she has a little roll-up!

I also slipped in 15 crayons because what would a crayon roll-up be without the crayons??  I made her a few other little goodies, like a headband and a fabric braided bracelet, but in my rush to mail it on time I forgot to take a picture.  Shucks!  I hate when that happens.  

Oh well, maybe I can get a photo of the birthday girl modeling her presents this week!

If you are interested in making one for a little monkey in your life, I used this tutorial.  It is quick, easy, and really straight forward.
