Make a Colored Pencil Roll
I made a batch of colored pencil rolls to sell at my little shelf at the Trolley Stop Market and thought you might like to make one too.
What you need - 2 kinds of fabric and a large pony tail holder
*2 pieces of main fabric 8 1/2 x 10 1/2
*1 piece of coordinating fabric for the pocket 10 x 10 1/2 (I folded it half and cut 5 x 10 1/2 on the fold)
Place the folded pocket fabric on top of one of the main fabrics. The fold should be at the top. Pin the fabric so it won't wiggle.
Pin the band a little down from the top of the pocket. It needs to stick out just a little, but make sure you put the main part of the band in towards to the pocket or it won't work right.
When you get to the band, carefully remove the pin and go back and forth a few times so it's sewn down tight.
These are perfect for stashing in your "Mom bag" or putting in your child's backpack for creating on the go. Or just for having tidy colored pencils!
