Last Tuesday Cecelia celebrated her third birthday. Keeping with my tradition of handmade gifts I decided to make her a crayon roll. I originally got the idea from a roll up makeup brush organizer.
I ended up using the same fabrics as her Mama & Me half apron set, so when she opened her gift she excitedly exclaimed “An Apron!” I laughed explaining that yes, the fabrics were the same but this gift was not an apron. Upon a thorough investigation of her present she announced to my mom, “Grammy, I’d like to color now.”
There was lots of oohhhhing and aaahhhing by the adults at her party. Then a wave of annoyance washed over the room once everyone learned I whipped it up that morning.
I think I may have to make one of these babies for my ever growing surplus of crochet hooks! I probably won’t use ric rac as that was a bit of a pain in the arse, but maybe a nice edge binding or a funky ribbon.
