Dora the Explorer Crayon Caddy

Dora the Explorer Crayon Caddy

Kids will love heading to preschool with all of their crayons, scissors and glue in hand. This roll-up caddy keeps everything neat and handy. We've stitched channels for the crayons and supplies with a machine, but you can also do it by hand, or with fabric glue.

Directions

    Cut a 15- by 10-inch rectangle of blue felt.

  2. Step 2

    Fold up 3 inches from the bottom. Pin to secure. Cut one 16-inch length of the grosgrain ribbon. Fold it in half and tuck it (to hide it) inside the folded edge at one end. Stitch in place.

  3. Step 3

    At 1-inch intervals, stitch six 1-inch channels for crayons. Then stitch two 1 3/4-inch-wide channels for scissors and a glue stick. Then stitch an additional six 1-inch-wide channels for the remaining crayons.
