I think crayon rolls are nifty, but when I try to put one in my purse it's awfully bulky. I'm the mommy, I wind up carrying them.

 So I had reason to experiment as there were birthday parties to attend & gifts to be given. Therefore I did crayon wallets! Both have elastic closures (receivers were under age 6, I wasn't sure they knew how to tie laces yet). The camouflage one is just a loop that wraps around the whole wallet. The girls one has a shorter loop that wraps around a decorative button. I intended 24 slots as that was the box size of crayons I purchased to go with these, but I fail at math & didn't quite get it on either one  Roll Eyes

One for a boy, one for a girl...


Open: crayon slots face the fold to keep them contained while traveling.


I did the camo one first, and was happy but realized I could add a pocket.


There were separate parties, the boy never knew he didn't get the same as the girl. He did get stickers though.

hmm... I winged it, I don't have a pattern to share with you, sorry. There are instructions here for crayon rolls (Search for posts by Vegbee, she has posted a few tutes & maybe one of those, I think).

The elastic closure was a great idea.  Good design Smiley
