Crayon Roll

Here's another project that I had intended to make and give as Christmas presents to two young girls, but alas, I ran out of time and am just finishing them now. I probably could have figured out some way to have finished them on time had I realized how simple they really were! I started these last night and finished them tonight and think it took 2 hours (or 2 1/2 tops) in total in the pair. Not bad!!

In the future, I think I might lean toward making the roll a little bit longer so that each of the slots could be slightly bigger. I don't know for certain, but suspect that it might be a bit difficult for smaller hands to feed the crayons into their slots.

Nonetheless, a fun project that I'm sure I will make again in the future. The pattern - "Color Me Happy" - is by Linda Lum Debono and appeared in the Fall 2008 issue of Quilts and More.

Very cute... I could see making these for the nieces/nephews. Might have to see if I can dig the pattern out!

Looks like a fun project that young relatives would like very much.
