One of Carina’s favorite things to do is color, and it will be nice to have this roll ready to go in my baby bag when we go out. When Carina opened it and saw the crayon surprise, she had a huge smile on her face!
I followed Skip to my Lou‘s instructions carefully, but here’s what I did:
You need three pieces of wool felt 6″ X 16 1/2 (pocket), 5″ X 16 1/2″ (outside), 5″ x 16 1/2″ (inside).
Take the 6 X 16 1/2 piece (pocket) and fold it in half length ways.
Lay it on top of the 5″ X 16 1/2 (inside) piece.
Starting over 1 1/4″ from the edge, stitch from top to the bottom on the pocket piece. Then continuing stitching every 1″. Back stitch at the top of each stitching line to reinforce.
You will end with 1 1/4″ on the other side and 15 crayon pockets.
Place the pocket piece that you just sewed on top of your outside piece (wrong sides together). Gently stretch and pin to keep it all in place.
On the right edge at the middle insert a 30″ piece of ribbon folded in half. Insert the folded end about 1/2 an inch.
Sew all the way around the outside 1/4″ in from the edge.
Dress up the edge using pinking shears – be careful when you come to the ribbon – you will have to do each side separately.

Halloween is fast approaching, and with all of the trick-or-treaters in Katy, you need a lot of candy! We decided to buy online this year through Amazon, and I wanted to write a quick review because our experience was very positive.
We ordered four types of chocolate candy, all for unbeatable prices. The bags came in one big box surrounded by about fifteen ice packs to keep the sweets from melting. If you get Super Saver Shipping (which is free shipping) you really could not ask for a better deal. Now, I do not have to worry about stocking up on overpriced candy, and I have a lifetime supply of lunch bag coolers!
