Krayon Keeper - Crayon Caddy





I designed this Krayon Keeper this morning for my granddaughters first day of kindergarden. On Monday, August 10th, she will begin her all-day experience at Highland Elementary School in Mesa. Seems like only yesterday we were seeing her for the first time at the hospital. How time flies. She was in Early Learner's Half-Day last year.


I had seen some posts on the crayon caddies and after searching for patterns, I didn't see one that I liked. So I sat down and designed my own pattern "Krayon Keeper". This pattern is completely sewn on the machine. There are no bindings to be attached, no hems to be sewn, and it's a double layer. I think it looks great and will be very durable. Just throw in the machine if it needs cleaning. I made this one to fit a box of 16 regular crayons but plan to make one for the larger crayons that come in a box of 8.


If anyone would like a copy of this pattern, please a reply on my most current blog entry. Please leave your email address and I will email you a copy of the pattern.

I would love to have the instructions whenever you get around to finishing them. I don't have any grandkids yet - but I'm hopeful that I will someday.

I would love the instructions, I'm at sewing and bindings are not my favorite thing. I would love to gift a couple of these this christmas.
Thanks, Patty

I'd love a copy of this pattern / instruction set - the crayon keeper is a fabulous idea for a kid gift as well -- I'd like to make one to send with a drawing book to a friend's 4-year old.

I love the crayon keeper. Would you please send me the pattern. Also, have you thought about incorporating a large space in the middle for a small notebook. Just a thought.

Laura said...

Sorry my email is lauraleeharris@gmail.com

Pam said...

I had thought of a book cover that incorporated the Krayon Keeper. The cover would fit a notebook or coloring book. Laura your idea is also a good one.
