I am taking a break from making handbags and decided to try something completely different. It seems every sewer out there has made a few crayon or marker rolls, and I had some really cute fabric set aside to try making a few myself.
And then I came across some pictures of these beautiful, quilted rolls, where the background was colour-coded to the marker colours. I knew I wanted to make one. But of course, when the time came, do you think I could find those photos again?
So, I did what I do best. I made it up on my own. I am really happy with the way these turned out. They are a great use for colourful scraps and although a lot more work intensive then the average marker roll, I think the end result is worth it. Here is my first one, unrolled.
I used batting scraps in between the layers of the quilted pieces and the front pocket is interfaced for durability.
I figured while I had the rainbow strips out and cut I might as well make a bunch. Here are a few more.
They work well with pencil crayons, too!
