Hello everyone! I hope your holidays went fantastic! Mine was hectic and full of handmaking gifts for family and friends! It paid off in the end because everyone loved their gifts. That makes me feel great inside;)  Now I want to pass on some of the gifts I made to you.

These are my instructions for a "Kids Crayon Wrap". I wanted to make something for my cousin's little kiddos and did a search for kids unique handmade gifts on the net. This is one of the cuter ones that came up. It was on Etsy for sale and, even thought the price was ok at twelve bucks, I decided that since I needed 7 of them that I'd try to make them on my own. I took a good long look at the one for sale and figured out a way to make my own.

Here are the very easy steps in which to make your own.

(If you enjoy this 'ible and it helps you with your gift giving please vote for it and rate it! I try to do the same for others as well. It's a lot of fun to see something you've made get lots of comments too! lol.)

Step 1: Getting your supplies ready!

Here is what you will need:
  • Fabric in two colors/patterns that coordinate. 1 in a busy pattern and 1 in a more subdued or plain pattern.
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape
  • Straight Pins
  • Matching Thread
  • 8 Crayons
  • Sewing Machine (Optional- this can be hand sewn)
  • Iron/ Ironing Board (Optional but a huge help)
I have been looking all over for cute <a href="http://www.igiftsandthings.com" rel="nofollow">gifts and things</a> to make and give to people, and this is one of the cutest ideas I have ever seen! Thank you for sharing this.
I've seen a few other examples of this project and I have to hand it to you... your assembly and seam layout is very nice and clean. I haven't made one your way yet but it looks like a winner. I totally had an ah hah moment too in just ironing the seams down in place first vs the way I tried the first time which was to sew everything with the wrong side showing then turn it right side out. You way looks nicer. Mine was a little rumply looking.
really cool and useful! I will make one for my sister?
I bet she will love it! I'd love to see your finished project! Thanks.<br>
Love it! Great photos and instructions and an awesome project. :)
Thank you so much! I'm so glad you liked it. I love doing these:) I think I'm getting addicted! Ha! Thanks again.
