Crayon Pouches





I was feeling a little crafty yesterday, and decided to take a stab at making my own crayon pouches—four of them! The idea came from the 4 Real forum and the Nested site. I must say, I was tickled with the results. They are quite easy.

The first two photos show the little boys' pouches -- small and perfect for crayons. The second two show my older girls' pouches. My oldest requested one with larger slots for bundles of colored pencils.

My husband is now requesting a customized pouch for his wrenches.

You did a great job! I like how you started with the pattern, but made the slots to suit your needs.

Oh these are beautiful! I am so impressed! Maybe I'll work up the nerve to try my hand at these.
