Sneak Peek

My party planners (Steph and Leah) are coordinating a cowboy-themed birthday party for Luke (more on that later). I'm working on the favors for Luke's little friends.
I found a great tutorial to make a crayon roll on a new-to-me blog called Skip To My Lou.
Cindy's instructions make it super simple. (Cindy also was very helpful sorting out my interfacing confusion.)
I couldn't find enough crayons to fill up all of the slots, but you get the idea.
I used Katie Jump Rope bandanna fabric, and instead of ribbon I used pieces of leather to tie up the roll to give it a bit of a cowboy look.
I think these will be really handy to throw in the diaper bag when you're going out to eat or to the doctor's office.
We're going to print some cowboy-themed coloring pages from the internet and make little booklets for the kids. Should be cute! Stay tuned for the finished project.

This turned out so cute! And the leather tie is genius.

Ooooh FANTASTIC! Do you think the other kids are totally jealous of Luke's super-cool mom?


Love the fabric, the leather cord is genius.

Oops, just realized I totally plagiarized Leah's comment.
