I teach a 3-year-old Sunday School class and this year I made my kids crayon rolls for Christmas! I have seen crayon rolls and thought they were really cute and would be pretty easy to make so I decided to try it and they turned out wonderful!
I didn’t follow any type of pattern, I just cut a small strip of fabric for the pocket and then a larger piece that I folded over for the actual roll. Then I hemmed the top of the pocket with a cute zig-zag stitch and then made 12 slots for 12 crayons (I pinned and used an actual crayon to see if it would fit!) After pinning I sewed the crayon slots, then sewed up the bottom of the printed fabric & bottom of pocket and then sewed up the sides and added a ribbon tie! Simple and easy!

Close up of the crayon pockets…they aren’t perfectly sized and my stitches aren’t perfect either but the crayons fit wonderfully!
With crayons in the pocket!
Just roll up from the side opposite the ribbon
8 crayon rolls for special kiddos!
I just love how these turned out! They were so easy and will make such cute little gifts!
The best part of these, they were very inexpensive! I had lots of cute “kid” fabric that my grandma had given me and during back to school sales I purchased several boxes of $.25 crayons! I made these 8 crayon rolls for $1 and about 4 hours of my time!
