Ignore the super tall grass, with all the rain we've had it has just been too wet to mow. But aren't these bags fun? I just love simple little tote bags like these, we always have several hanging around the house. They are great to grab on the way out the door and perfect for the kids to load up and haul around. In fact, I think I'll whip us up a couple more specifically for library bags. Our current library bag isn't quite wide enough and now Kait is big enough to want her own to carry.
I adore this patchwork fabric and have been waiting for a good project for it. It jumped out at me when I was starting these bags. I think it was a good match. I made the crayon rolls out of matching fabric so there would be no questioning which roll went with which bag, and which girl.
I love love love making crayon rolls. They are such a quick and fun project and every kid always seems to like them. There are a ton of great tutorials out there to make your own. Prudent Baby has a great tutorial which is just like how I made these only I make them just a bit smaller to hold 12 crayons. I've found that gives the girls plenty of different colors to use without having to worry about a ton of crayons while we're out of the house.
