With a new baby, sometimes I am "trapped" for a long time because the baby is asleep on me or eating or such and so I spend time scrolling about thinking about quilting and sewing more than I do actually quilting or sewing.
Pinterest is particularly addictive for me as a quilter, and I came across the cutest tutorial for a Crayon Roll Up from Kutz Paper Scissors that I wanted to jump on right away.
I've now made seven. Seriously, these are addictive and fast.
My older daughter initially was not all that interested...until she saw a few finished ones and decided maybe she needed one after all. I promptly took her to my stash and told her to pick whatever she wanted. Suddenly she determined she needed two because there were too many choices! (I so, so understand).
|This is one of two destined for my daughter's teacher's sons.|
And I had to pull out some chevrons, spaceships and lions to put together these two rolls for my friend's two sons.
|Here are my daughter's roll ups. One for my purse and one for hers, so I'm told.|
I've also made one for my sweet nephew, a friend's little girl who loves horses and for the neighbour's daughter as a "big sister" gift to accompany the quilt I'm making for her new baby brother when he arrives in August. I told you...these are addictive!
|Here they are for two little brothers just waiting for me to add the crayons.|
I've already stocked up on more ribbon so I can make more and I'm contemplating making one for each child in my daughter's senior kindergarten class as a year end gift but that might be crazy. Right? What do you think? 22 children and about 15 minutes per roll up...
Should I do it?
These are awesome...I made one of these for my granddaughter, also made an apron for her and made slots for her crayola twistables...dang but she looked adorable in it!ReplyDelete
