In my search for stocking stuffers for boys I also came across a tutorial for making felt crayon rolls. I couldn't wait to try it out and finally got the chance this morning. I made the rolls a bit longer since all the boxes of crayons I had on hand were 24 count and if I made them 16 count I didn't know what I'd do with the extra crayons. Of course I have 6 or 7 boxes that I picked up during my back to school hoarding. I mean shopping. When you can get them for a penny or five cents each I can't resist!
My attempt at taking an artistic picture.
ta da! The finished project. Isn't it cute?

here. (Wait a while for it to load and then click on the picture of the cute fabric balls under "free patterns" and a pdf will open.) Anyhow, I can't remember what blog I saw them on that lead me to the link but she suggested adding a bell inside to make it more fun for the kids and I'm sure more annoying for the parents. Since I don't have any guy fabric I thought I'd make some out of felt. They sewed up pretty fast. Now I just have to handsew them closed. I think the will do for Christmas presents for my nephews. One is just a baby and just got a new dog he loves to play with. The other one is a bit older but loves to throw things so maybe this will be a hit with him as well. We'll see.
