Making a Crayon Roll with KAM Snaps
- 3 12"x6" Pieces of Fabric
- 1 12"x6" Piece of Interfacing
- 2 KAM Snap Sets
- KAM Snap Pliers and Awl
- Standard Sewing Machine
- Cut 3 Pieces of 12"x6" and 1 Piece of Interfacing. This will make a Medium Sized Crayon Roll and will hold 9-10 Crayons. You can adjust your Fabric length up or down to hold more or less Crayons. About 2" when to edges, seams and Snap placement.
- Iron the Interfacing on the the wrong side of the fabric that will be the back of the Crayon Roll.
- Iron the Piece of Fabric in half that will become the pocket to hold the Crayons and lay it on the Piece of Fabric that will be its backing.
- Pin them together.
- Every 1" sew a straight line down, back stitching that the beginning.
- Take the back piece, Fabric and Interfacing, and the front piece, Fabric Pocket, place right sides together and sew a 1/4" seam on three sides. Set the stitch at both ends.
- Turn the Fabric right side out and push out the corners.
- Iron it flat.
- Fold in the unfinished edge about 1/4" and iron flat. Pin flat.
- Sew all the way around the Crayon Roll with a 1/8" seam. Make sure to back stitch at the beginning and end.
- On the top right corner of the Crayon Roll poke a hole for the KAM Snap Cap and Stud with your Awl a 1/2" in and 1/2" down. Repeat on the bottom right corner a 1/2" in and 1/2" up.
- Install the KAM Snap, I used G115 Turquoise for this project to match the fabrics my youngest son picked out. Repeat.
- This is what it will look like.
- To figure out the placement of the KAM Snap Cap and Sockets, add Crayons and roll it up.
- I, then, marked the placement of the KAM Snaps.
- Now install the KAM Snap Caps and Sockets. The second round of snaps landed in the middle of one of the crayon spots. As this was my first attempt at a Crayon Roll there is a learning curve. It could still hold a Crayon. It just would sit down in the pocket as well. I would probably adjust for the placement of the Snaps a little differently next time, maybe :).
- The finished product will look like this.
- Add Crayons, Roll, and Go! Tada!!! Easy, functional and a crowd pleaser, I have a very pleased boy :)!
