Doodle Pad Love

The kids have a couple birthday parties coming up, so I figured I'd whip out a couple of these cute doodle pad holders.  They're super fast to make and the kids can kill hours in a car!

I used a tutorial by Sewing Novice.  It came together pretty quick, and after making one, I realized that I'd overbought all the interfacing, so I had enough to make a second.  All in all, the two only took a couple hours to make, and that included plenty of "pat on the back" time.

These two hold jumbo crayons, but I think I might make a couple more to hold regular-sized crayons and maybe add a loop to hold a pencil.  It's really a blank slate, so I could customize it forever.

Linking up with Blossom Heart Quilts for Sew Cute Tuesday and My Quilt Infatuation for Needle and Thread Thursday!

Sew Cute Tuesday


  1. Mary, these are adorable! I've seen the plain crayon rolls, but not anything with a pad holder included, so I'm pinning to make some myself for my favorite "little friends". Thanks for sharing.

  2. I made my daughter one of these a while back...I wonder where it went? Your versions are super cute!

  3. How fun! I so wish I had one of these when mine was little little. She might still like one now!

  4. These are wonderful, and practical. Much better than the baggie of crayons I carried in my purse until they became dust!

  5. This is fantastic! It would be such a cute gift too!

    Thank you so much for sharing this at Needle and Thread Thursday!
