Let's All Color!





Ok, so I was on my favorite shopping website, www.etsy.com. when I ordered a crayon caddy for my sweet nephew Peter Henry, with his name sewn on it. I realized that I could probably make my own, so I found a free pattern on line and this material from Swany's, and here it is. I love the ones people make and there are many different variations that I've seen. It actually makes me want one although I haven't colored with crayons in years.

I made this one for Noah, who is three. I modified the pattern so it is thicker and holds a full 24 pack of crayons, plus the glue stick we always need. I made a few mistakes and a person can tell its homemade, but I think Noah would be ok with it. Even if the poor tyke doesn't like to color, he'd better like it!! Anyway, I looked for larger crayons for toddler age but the nex was all out of those.

Then I went nuts and bought some material thinking of the little boys and girls in my English class, some pink with little cakes and candies and berries on it, and some blue with teddy bears having a picnic on it. Now, I don't know what I'll do with that material...
