Christmas has long been over but I finally got around to snapping some pictures of my 11th hour crafting on Christmas Eve Eve (we open gifts on Christmas Eve after Church and a late late dinner. Some years you could say we open gifts early Christmas morning… say at 1am!)
So there I was trying to think of some stocking stuffers for Little Peanut when I remembered this:
We were at the Doctors office and had an antsy pants on our hands. Luckily there was a notepad and pen on the desk to keep her occupied. I remember thinking at the time, “It would be nice to have some kind of crayon roll for these moments.”
So I pulled out the sewing tools and fabrics, got to work and came up with my “On-the-go Artist” pack.
It holds 5 crayons and a small notepad (that you can find in the dollar section at Target).
It closes with a button and elastic loop.
I designed it so you can leave the notebook tucked in while coloring. There’s a 2 inch slot that you put the back flap into. It’s not quite a pocket but could easily be turned into one by sewing one side down. (Which I would do next time to tuck in some stickers!) Try as I may I couldn’t get Little Peanut to stand still long enough to snap a shot of it in action.
It fits great into my purse and is even useful for my own notes when I’m in a bind! (Shhh don’t tell the kiddo!)
It’s based off of this Crayon Roll tutorial from Prudent Baby.
