Crayon Roll Tutorial {for markers}

Okay, well… this isn’t actually a crayon roll project, its a MARKER ROLL! Whatever it is, I have a fun sewing tutorial for you. I didn’t know if anyone would know what a marker ammo roll was, so I thought I would give this a name people might know… but, I’m going to show you a FUN re-mix on the crayon roll… its a…

 I’ve got the full sewing tutorial for you today…

I loved this project because I used up a bunch of scraps! You can wear it around your waist and be ready for any marker emergency, or roll it up and take your makers with your where ever you go!

marker ammo roll
Lets get started…
You will need:
main piece cut 6″x21″ cut 2
Pocket cut 7″ x 21″
ties/strap cut 2″x21″ cut 2
I’ve laid out all the pieces here
marker roll
 Take your pocket piece and fold it in half {the green flower fabric}. Align the bottom and sides with one of the main roll pieces {the pink} I put a few pins in to hold it in place.

Mark every 1 1/2 inches {for fat markers} less for thin ones. I just used a marker and put a dot along the top of the pocket and a dot along the bottom to mark the sew lines.
 Sewing from the top mark to the bottom mark all along the pocket.
 Here is the pocket all sewn.
Now for the ties/strap. Fold in half the long way and sew along the long edge
Turn and add a label here if you want
 Do you have your own labels? I have really found that having personalized labels are great for branding. Especially when making a gift! Here are some label companies I have work with. This one sells sticky labels for easy applications.

Mabels Labels  has great Iron-on Labels +  loads of labels for everything in your life that needs to be labeled.

Now back to the project! Pin the two ties on either side of the roll. The ties should be places just at the top of the pocket. The raw edge goes outward and the tie inwards for now.
Take the other piece of the main roll and place it on top of the pocket side. Keep the ties inside and pin all around the outside.
Sew around, leaving a four inch hole for turning.
Clip the corners and turn. I use my scissors to poke out the corners.
Top stitch around the edge, closing the hole.
Fill it with markers or crayons {and I put another little gift}.. Roll it up and away you go! A perfect gift for a little girl {or boy, if you change the fabric!}.  I think a crayon roll is a great gift… my son wants one after seeing this one, so I guess I know what I’m making next!
My son had fun trying on this crayon roll for the photos…. and, for some reason he thought it might be something to eat?

    Awesome take on a crayon roll, Emily!!! I just love the fact that it can be worn as a belt and I bet kids would, too. I’ve pinned this one.

  8. Have you seen the second One Yard Wonders book? It came out in 2011 and I had a very similar pattern in there. Love that you modified it to fit markers!
