crayon cozy

I have seen crayon cozies/ crayon rolls around blog land in the past. So I decided to try making one for my son to use at church on Sundays.





It was a project I did not enjoy making. I should have followed a tutorial, because I'm not an expert when it comes to sewing. It's a simple enough project though.... it would have been fine if I didn't decide to use t-shirt material for the pocket part. What a headache that stuff is! It makes it impossible to keep things lined up.





I didn't love the process of creating it. It's not perfect, but my son LOVES it. I told him I was making him a present and he would just sit beside me and watch me sew... and rip out seams :)






He was so excited when it was all done & I gave it to him. So I'm glad that I made it. I think it's a fun & cute little project. I learned my lesson that t-shirt material is not my friend.






Here it is all rolled up and secured with the button and elastic I added to keep it all done up nicely........
