I've been busy...

These have kept me in the sewing room the last week. I followed this tutorial with only one change.. 
Two of these have the large size crayons but the other six are for older children and I wanted to use colored pencils.. All I did was change the stitching lines for the pencils pockets to one inch apart.  Then it will hold 10 colored pencils which is exactly how many are in the package from the dollar store..







They are all wrapped in Christmas paper and ready to go to our family party on Sunday..  Each grandchild, niece and nephew will get one..  I hope they like them..

Looks like you have been busy. The kids are going to love these. Great work! I think we both posted about the same thing on the same day with the same link. What are the odds?

Have a super great sewing and stitching day.

I love these and planned to make them for the grandkids for Christmas. Other things got in the way, so they will get them as a Valentine's Day gift. Thanks for showing us yours.

I have seen those... cute... I'm thinking that my grands would like them also! They would keep them busy while sitting in Church.
Sooo how did the nieces/nephews like them?
