Crayon Holders

A crayon roll, useful for kiddies when at cafe's! A gift for a 3yr old girl, made using a tutorial found here fairy fabric purchased at the op shop, eco-fi (made from recycled plastic bottles) felt, and craft ribbon from my 'stash.

Childrens book party sweetie pouches

I made these for my son's third birthday party; sweetie pouches to give to his friends to say thank you for coming!

The children's books I used for this project, I have blogged about before, as I have used them for my coasters. An op shop gave me a bag of damaged books (mostly ripped or scribbled on) that I can use for craft projects, that would otherwise be thrown in the bin.

I ripped out book pages, used a small plate as a template to draw around, and cut two circles per pouch.
Machine stitched two circles together, leaving an opening to fill with treats - in this case, chocolate covered sultana's, then machine stitched the hole at the top to seal.
