Craft fair season is in full swing, and this weekend is the big one…the only two-day event I signed up for this year. And what am I doing during these final hours before the event? Why, coming up with a completely new design idea, of course! I really should have my head checked…
Anyway, I saw an idea for these great crayon wallets and thought, “I could make that in a jiffy! And what great stocking stuffers they would make! I simply MUST make a half-dozen or so immediately!”
A “jiffy” turned out to be a 13 hour-long process of shopping for crayons and paper (the sixth store was the charm!), designing the wallet features, cutting pattern templates, drawing a crayon applique, making prototype number 1…and number 2…and number 3, before finally nailing it down and whipping out 7, count ’em, 7 fun crayon wallets, eager to end up in some young one’s Christmas stocking!
Boy, I hope folks like these. Late nights and I do not get along well!
I could only get a couple of pictures for you because it’s raining out. I’ve got others… red denim, dark slate gray denim, and a couple of corduroy ones in orange and sparkly hot pink:
Aren’t these fun?! O.K., I think it’s time for a nap. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
