Who has a child with a box of crayons? I do! I have noticed that crayon boxes break so easily and get bent out of shape so I thought it was time to make a no sew crayon pouch holder that doesn't mind handling the bumps of living with a toddler son. I wish I had made this earlier, maybe then I would have all the last box of crayons altogether... I know that is a huge dream that would barely ever happen. Crayons are on the list of the most thing to get lost next to socks. Here is how I made my Crayon pouch holder.
First, you are going to need the following, an iron, fabric, Heat n Bond, scissors, and crayons.
I emptied the box of crayons to use as a guide on top of my fabric that I bought from Micheals Craft Store for $1.49 so that I knew how much it would fit.
Next, I took the Heat & Bond that I also bought from Micheals Craft Store and placed a piece at the end of the fabric.
I turned the fabric over.
Then iron for around 3-5 seconds.
Cut any extra fabric you don't need.
Then continue adding Heat & Bond to any loose fabric.
For the top of the pouch, I made a fold just like how I did at the beginning.
When choosing how I wanted to open and close this pouch, I was leaning towards a zipper or a button but then settled with Velcro.
You have a chose to leave it as is or you can take it a step further and give it a little bit more structure. I find that without my last step the crayons are all over the place but with this step it was a lot sturdy. For my last step, I added one last Heat & Bond to the middle of the pouch.
Such an easy project with style.
Grab your crayons and go!
