One of the best things for a beginner sewer to make are crayon rolls. They don't take long to make and it's just straight lines. Super simple. I first learned how to make them at one of my favorite blogs, Skip To My Lou. I used her Crayon Roll Tutorial as a starting point and have made a ton of these since.
These were the very first crayon rolls I made. I fell in love with the fabric. I got both fabrics from Hobby Lobby. Eventhough it was a few years ago that I purchased mine, you can still find both fabrics there.
I love this cowboy one so much I'm thinking of having Baby Jack's first birthday party based off of it. Still on the fence though...
For these I used ribbon for ties but since then I've been using elastic cord that I loop and sew into one side of the roll. You can read HERE about where I get my cord.
Isn't this fabric great? Such a fun fabric especially for travel.
I have a huge stack of fabric cut out for rolls for a project my mom and I are working on but I'll have to show that to you when it's finished.
Currently crayons are banned from our house because someone (cough, cough, Maggie, cough) has had a little problem coloring on well... everything.
So if your child doesn't have a crayon to wall addiction you should totally make some rolls for your kids. They also make great gifts!
