I just loved these little traveling crayon cases when I saw this tutorial. http://www.thesemomentsofmine.com/2011/06/25/travelin-crayon-case-tutorial/
After a bit of umming and ahhing I chose a couple of Robert Kaufman and Micheal Miller cottons to make two. A short amount of sewing later, this was the result.
There’s space for 8 crayons or pens, and a drawing pad or colouring book in the middle. Great for slipping in your bag and bringing out when the kids need to sit quietly for 5 mins. Not something that comes naturally for my two.
