Fat Quarter Crayon Roll Tutorial

My good friend Shonda asked me to write a Crayon Roll tutorial for her.
These are very popular right now and so I know there are tutorial all over the Internet.
So why not throw my version out there too?!

Using 2 fat quarters you can make 2 crayon rolls.
Of course if you only wanted to make one you could just use 1 fat quarter but then you wouldn't have the fun different fabrics.
Besides these are so easy why not make 2....one to keep and one to give away....or one for the church bag and one for the purse!

(I used Moda, Fandango by Kate Spain)
photo disclaimer, these photos were taken on a sunny/rainy/sunny/rainy day. The lighting kept changing.....subsequently the colors may change from photo to photo.

Supplies:
2 fat quarters quilting weight cotton fabric.
2 6"x 17" pieces of craft fleece
2 buttons
2 4" pieces of elastic cording (or 2 hair elastics)
Coordinating thread
fabric marker
sewing machine
iron
ruler
needle





 You should have drawn 15 lines.








IMPORTANT!!! When you sew over the elastic backstitch over the elastic 5 or six times. Make sure that elastic is going to stay tight!




After turning and poking out the corners,  lightly spray the stitching lines with water to make them disappear and then iron the entire crayon roll well.




You're done!
Add your crayons (16 or 32 each pocket can hold one or two small or one large crayon)

This is a really great tutorial and I found it to be one of the easiest ones to follow! I even made a few crayon rolls as xmas presents this year and here are the results :)
