Here is Dixie Diva’s Crafty Treasures by Amy Lookabill’s Crayon Roll Up Tutorial for all of you to get crafting with!

WHAT YOU NEED:
FABRIC (I USED A BANDANA FOR THIS ONE)
FUSIBLE WEBBING
PONY O

MATCHING THREAD SEWING MACHINE RULER OR MEASURING TAPE

FABRIC PEN
CRAYONS
MEASURE AND CUT: 3 PIECES OF FABRIC 13 ½” X 5″ 1 PIECE FUSIBLE WEBBING SAME SIZE
IRON ON THE FUSIBLE WEBBING TO THE WRONG SIDE OF 1 OF THE 3 PIECES OF FABRIC

TAKE THE 2nd PIECE OF FABRIC, FOLD IN HALF AND IRON

PIN THIS PIECE TO THE 1ST PIECE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF FABRIC. ALIGN THE OPEN EDGE OF 2ND PIECE WITH THE BOTTOM OF 1ST PIECE. JUST PIN ON EACH END TO HOLD IN PLACE.

NEXT YOU WILL BEGIN MARKING YOUR LINES. USE A WATER SOLUABLE FABRIC PEN. START BY MAKING YOUR FIRST LINE IN THE MIDDLE, WHICH WILL BE AT 6 ¾”.

THEN MAKE A LINE EVERY INCH AFTER THAT. YOU SHOULD HAVE A TOTAL OF 13 LINES.

YOU ARE ONLY MAKING THE LINES ON THE FOLDED PIECE OF FABRIC.

NEXT YOU WILL BEGIN STITCHING EACH LINE, BACKSTITCH AT BEGINNING AND END TO LOCK IN PLACE.

NEXT, TAKE THE PONY O AND ALIGN IT JUST ABOVE THE FOLDED PIECE, FACING IN TOWARDS THE FABRIC. STITCH OVER IT, CLOSE TO THE EDGE. I DID A ZIG ZAG STITCH AND WENT BACK AND FORTH SEVERAL TIMES.
NEXT TAKE THE 3RD PIECE OF FABRIC AND PLACE IT OVER THE 1ST 2 PIECES, RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER.

STITCH AROUND ALL SIDES, LEAVING ABOUT A 2″ OPENING ALONG THE TOP EDGE.

CLIP THE CORNERS, MAKING SURE NOT TO CUT THROUGH THE STITCHING.

START TURNING RIGHT SIDE OUT THROUGH THE OPENING. YOU CAN USE A BLUNT PENCIL, OR I USED A CROCHET HOOK, TO PUSH THE EDGES OUT.

IRON FLAT ALL THE WAY AROUND AND FOLD IN THE OPEN EDGE.
(NOTE-I SPRAYED WATER FROM MY IRON OVER THE MARKINGS FIRST TO REMOVE THEM )

STITCH ALL THE WAY AROUND, MAKING SURE TO CLOSE UP THE OPENING.

INSERT CRAYONS, ROLL AND SECURE WITH PONY O
And that’s it!  But be careful, these can be rather addictive.  Add crayons, a coloring book, and a matching bag (look for that to come) and you’ve got the perfect inexpensive birthday gift.  When school supplies are first put out, I buy up a bunch of the 19 cent boxes and have them on hand to fill one with.
