The aliens have landed!
Awhile back Melissa and I arranged a barter through her fabulous marketplace. She asked for a crayon roll for her son's birthday. Here's what I sent off in the mail last week.
It was much smaller than the pencil rolls I have worked on, so it took some tinkering to get the dimensions just right, but I think it turned out really well. The only hitch was that I intended to make one sized for the large-size triangle crayons. But when I tested them out they didn't behave well in a roll and were awkward to carry around. I had more success when I downsized to the regular-sized triangular crayons. I hope it loves it.
My favorite part is the exterior fabric. The aliens look so fun and friendly!
