Colored Pencil Roll Organizer!


 Colored Pencil Roll Organizer!
I was sent these Ohuhu 48 Fine Art Colored Pencils in exchange for this review.
All opinions are my own.


I absolutely love coloring...but I'm kind of a snob when it comes to what I color with.
I will not use crayons. Ugh.
 I absolutely love these pencils!
They are smooth, glide gently and even blend together softly!
My daughter and I colored most of an afternoon together!
Adult coloring is very therapeutic they say...
My cousin did the artwork and sells it as a downloadable coloring book!
I decided to make a pencil roll for easy storage of colored pencils.
Great for on the go...or Back to School too!
I used 2 pieces of fabric...about 12" by 18"
Place them so the pretty side of the fabrics are touching each other.
Then sew all around the border, except for about a 4 inch gap.
Turn the fabric right side out through the little hole.
Then iron and add a decorative stitch around the border to
hold the last 4 inches in place...plus look cute!
Now fold up the bottom about 4 inches or so.
Sew line after line after line.
I finished it off with a little elastic lace loop
Fit in your pencils and roll them up when you are ready to clean up!
Looks cute and is easy to transport!
Cute from the top too!

I'd love to give you a set of these great colored pencils too!
Leave me a comment on what you would do with 48 smooth gliding colored pencils!

I'd give them to my daughter who loves to color, draw and basically just create.

What an awesome idea! I'm heading to the fabric store today to purchase material to make 6-12 of these! I will use these in my classroom. I teach at the middle school level and students are provided with a 'suggested' supply list at the onset of school which includes colored pencils. Many students can not afford colored pencils due to financial reasons. I will have these roll-ups available for my students who 'forget' to bring their colored pencils to class. Thank you for sharing this idea.

They would go into my purse with one of my small coloring books, or even just sketch pad, so that when I needed that break they were there.
Now just to reread the instructions again when I'm more awake to get this all set up and made.
