My first attempt at a crayon roll, based on instructions I’ve seen around the Internet. I included a pocket for a small blank notebook, which means the roll is actually folded. (Next time, I would leave the pocket out.)
Use a playful, fun fabric. Any durable, washable material would work. I used a cotton-polyester blend but I think it would really well with a laminated cotton or oilcloth.
You’ll also need a strip of velcro or some other type of closure, according to your preference. The instructions here are for velcro but other crayon rolls I’ve seen use a length of ribbon to create a tie.
ETA: The fabric here is from Andover, a line of designs based on the books of Eric Carle.
