I've been wanting to make a crayon roll for a while, and finally had an excuse in a little girl's birthday party. It's so hard not to buy new fabric for every project, but I made myself use what I had and think it turned out pretty well.

I sewed a strip of the ribbon along the front of the pouch to help distinguish the front of the pouch from the back since they are both the same fabric. It was a little extra work, but came out well.

I've never been very good at measuring, so the slot on the right is too small, but still works, and the slot on the left is too big, it probably should have been 2 slots as there are only 15, and should be 16. And I sewed the ribbon on backwards. I think in the future, I'd like to use some sort of rubber band, maybe like a ponytail holder.

It's really great how you used a red zebra print ribbon to tie it all together (hehe literally). Super cute!
