Felt Crayon Caddy

34 I've been looking at these online for a couple of months, and finally decided to start making them! I found a great tutorial at Skip to My Lou, and just improvised a little.

This is my first one, so it's not exactly perfect, but I thought it was cute anyway. I just made my own crayon shape for the front.

I used a couple of ideas to improve the caddy at A Lemon Squeezy Home.

She suggested the ribbon behind the notepad to make it sturdy:

I started making these for my newphew and my boys, but my niece was here and asked for one, too. So I made her a girly one:

I'll find a cuter notepad at the Dollar Store to go in this one. This is all I had.

And instead of button closures, I used Velcro.

Please forgive the bad lighting on my photos!
These are super easy and cheap. It took less than 30 minutes for each one.
I used less than 2 full pieces of felt for each one. Felt is .25 cents at Hoby Lobby. The entire roll of ribbon was about $1.50, and of course I didn't use all of it. And crayons are on sale at Wal-Mart right now for .25 cents for a pack of 24. I only used 8 per caddy.
Is that fun or what???
