Jungle Fabric Crayon Roll

My mum picked up some jungle themed fabric from a charity shop in the Uk which she posted to me in Australia for my crafty projects.

I received an order for two crayon rolls on Recycled Market, so I made one crayon roll (boy theme) in aforementioned jungle fabric..

Felt is eco-fi, and elastic ribbon is from the resource rescue centre.

iPad Case

We have succumbed to technology, and got ourselves an iPad. I refuse however, to buy a new case for the iPad, when I can make one myself.

So, using the excess denim cut away fabric from a $3 thrift skirt refashion, and some leftover cool vintage Pucci-style fabric from a top I made, I traced around the outside of my iPad, and created a case. I did use quilt padding, to make it softer in between layers.

I used a button and hair tie to close its lip shut, and used fluorescent embroidery thread around the outside.
