This Christmas I made these adorable colored pencil rolls for for my two boys and my niece. They all love drawing and I thought how perfect this gift would be for them all. They have already come in handy on our road trip to Texas. I hope they'll be a favorite for years to come. I used the cut dimensions from You Go Girl's colored pencil roll tutorial. I did my interfacing different, replaced the button/elastic closure with ties, and added top stitching instead of binding. I'm very pleased with the results. I bought the kids each a drawing book that just gives you the beginning of a picture and prompts you to add something imaginative, The Boys Doodle Book by Andrew Pinder, Do You Doodle by NikalasCatlow, and Squiggles by La Zoo.

I made one set of the Ninja Turtle rolls for each of my boys.
I'm thrilled with the way this little set turned out for my niece. I hope she has fun stuffing her little girl treasures in the purse. I used a sheet I bought at a thrift store for the skirt and scraps I had for the purse.
A selection of coffee cozies I made for gifts this year. They are insulated, adjustable, reversible (with a different pattern on the other side), and save waste. A few friends have encouraged me to make more to sell. Feedback...what do you think? Would you use them, buy them, or forget them?
