I love block crayons because they are not easily snapped or broken. They just wear down to little blocks, but one thing I don’t like is when other crayons rub off onto the crayons. Then when the child goes to draw something, multiple colors comes off of one block. To remedy this problem, a crayon case is a good solution. For this crayon case, I make each felt pocket coordinate with the color of crayon it will hold making it look pretty and functional. Now, when the child goes to retrieve a color, it’s easier to spot which crayon to use, and likewise it makes putting the crayon away much easier.
Cut a piece of felt 5″x12″ for backing
Cut pockets for block crayons 1 3/4″x1 1/2″
Sew pockets onto felt
optional: decorate with wood piece
Tip: Don’t use metallic thread because it tends to break more easily.
