so. i'm assuming this is the best place to post this. well... if you consider it to be a wallet.. a crayon wallet. lol. anywho. this year for christmas i'm not spending any money on anyone including our children. everything i'm giving is either a freebie or handmade. (freebie as in coupon codes and such, not regifting)

there are 6 children who need gifts from us.. so, i made them a mini notepad and a crayon roll. quite awesome if i do say so myself =)

and the best part.. i made them out of old pillowcases that i really liked. of course i'm gonna vary them up with some different prints and such, but still great!

without the crayons


with crayons


rolled up




p.s. i will be replaced my daughters old broken crayons for new ones. i won't be that cheap. lol... okay okay, i'm still cheap because i bought 20894923842390 boxes of crayons when they were on sale for .20!

awesome tute here.. but i really didn't follow directions at all, i seem to have a problem with that.

Those are so cute. I'm with you on the not buying gifts. I swore off buying ready-made gifts 2 Christmases ago.

Agreed!

I really like the fabric, and that was sweet of you to use a pillowcase that you like =)

This is a super cute idea. I'm the same with Christmas for my friends. It's all being hand made from fabric I have laying around or bought off of the remnants spot. (being as the store down the way has all remnants 80% off  Cheesy ) Power to the craftster!!
