Now onto this super cute crayon case.  I thought this would make the cutest Easter basket stuffer.
Winner and Crayon CaseIt's super cute on the outside and holds everything a kid needs to create with on the inside.
Winner and Crayon CaseWant to make some for your little ones?
Items needed:
-2 pieces of 7x16 inch fabric
-1 piece 4.5x7 inch fabric
-2.5 inch long velcro
-matching thread
First take your two 7x16 inch pieces of fabric and sew around 3 of the edges.  Clip corners and turn right side out.
