The winner and a crayon roll

Drum roll please The winner of this lovely bracelet is Alicia Aka Yaya e-mail me your Addy and I will send this beauty off..

Did you all notice my blog back ground? only until midnight do we have to wait until the movie comes out.. I won't be at the midnight showing cuz I have baby M first thing but I will go tomorrow evening. I am so excited.. Anyone elce excited?

Yesterday I thought I would start on some Christmas gifts for my friends and family for the holidays. I am not going to share everything but I thought I would share this darn cute crayon roll .. It is super easy to make and dose not take much fabric at all.
I found 2 different tutorials and I liked them both..

The first tutorial is from Little birdie secrets This the one I used .. It was super easy..
The second tutorial I found on SkipToMYLOU
I really Like this one as well it is very much the same except you line the inside with iron on vinyl so the crayons don't mark up the fabric. tomorrow I hope to but some of that iron on vinyl.
I have a few more projects that could use the Vinyl as well.

My daughter used to have a crayon roll that she loved. I think the iron on vinyl is a really great idea!

Congrats to Yaya!
