How To Make A Felt Crayon and Notepad Holder
2 pieces 6″ X 12″ (lining, outside)
1 piece 3″ X 12″ (pocket)
1 – flower shape
1 – circle for center of flower
1 button with shank
1 – 12″ piece of ribbon
1 – 11″ piece of ribbon
8 - Crayons
1 – 3″ X 5″ 80 Sheet Memo Pad
Starting in the middle of the felt pocket, mark 1 5/8″ from the center then every 1″ to the side. The last space will be about 1 1/2″ (give or take, felt can stretch while sewing). Repeat on other side. Really it only needs to be marked at the top. If making a bunch, use one as a template to mark the rest.
