Felt crayon caddy

Felt crayon caddy

Crayons are a busy bag must, with little kids the boxes hardly ever survive the spills and tears so I made this little crayon caddy for my boy and it works…this particular one was actually made as a gift for a special little girl. You just shove this in your handbag and pull out whenever you need them to play quietly, a post-it pad fits in nicely behind the crayons for extra fun

You need:

  • Pieces of felt
  • A button
  • Foam letters
  • Crayons
  • Glue
  • Needle and thread

You do:

  1. Measure and cut the amount of felt you will need (it needs to fold over the crayons twice and leave extra for a flap)
  2. Glue down side, I used a glue gun because I love my glue gun, but you can use whatever you prefer
  3. Position decorations as you prefer, I just spelt out her name
  4. Glue down the decorations and cut a hole for the button
  5. Then sew on button, I used red thread on button then did some stitches on the side for a more handmade look – which I love
  6. Slot in crayons
