You can get them in a varitey of Fabrics and even get your kids Name on them.
Have you seen them.
What do you like about them?
I finally caved and bought one
(even thought they are totally affordable-Most under $10)
They have slots for the crayons which is great for teaching that Pre-schooler to clean up!
Then just roll and tie and stick in your purse.
Crafters Flaw or if it needs improvement in design......\
The crayons keep dumping out if you dont hold it right side up ...which is very inconvienant especailly is out in public.
It was very frustrating for my 3 year old.
You could say "Make the slots more snug to the crayon"
Well that might make it harder for tiny hands to get the crayons in and out.
So Maybe add a Velcro Flap or something to the top side?
Not sure if that is a good solution but surely there is one!
How would you improve on this Awesome Design..
I will still most def. use ours but will just be very careful when packing in and out of Diaper Bag.

Do the Crayons Fall out?

Everyone Loves a Customized product and we are usually willing to pay the big $$ for it. So its soooooo disappointing to get a cape, or shirt, etc...with a special applique' on it only to have it come off.
Now you have a blank item that you apparently overpaid for.
I have one item that the baby didnt even get to wear before it was peeling up.
That is why I prefer Sewn Applique' ..you know the Real Crafty Kind.
I have a friend who hand draws, hand cuts, and then sews them on.
These are not going to peel up for sure and are WORTH the $$.
Iron on is OK for do-it-yourself I think or from someone who can guarantee that its not going to peel up before its first wear or in the first wash!
Here are some tips!
Stictch it even after ironing on for the best results

is AWESOME AND STINKIN HILARIOUS!
When I got it in the Mail from our BOOKPIG(netflix for books)
(Yes we are book addicts at our house)
I thought it was an educational type book.
And yes it is Educational if you like BUTTS lol!
It has this great Rhyming Flow like you would find in a Dr. Seuss Book!
"Why do we have butts? Perchance. a place to place our underpants!"
"Our rumps provie a built-in chair we carry with us everywhere!"
Come on you know you want to LAUGH!
And the pictures are even funnier.
"Butts have cheeks just like our faces. though they're found in different places"
Our favorite line!
Read to your kids everyday- Books like this really pulls the whole family in!
What books are your Family Favorites?

So you Purchase an item that is Handcrafted. You pay the Price because you feel supporting a Crafting Mommy is worth it plus you know they put a lot of time into that 1 item.
Now you get it and you have found stitching to be so so.....crooked, strings hanging off, fit not right....
What do you do?
A lot of women and moms LOVE Boutique Style Hand Crafted Items but ONE rush job like this sent out can ruin it for ALL the WAHM Crafty Moms.
Customers-How does it make you feel when you receive an item like this?
Crafters- What are your inspection techniques you use before shipping out a handmade item?
If it fails inspection do you remake? If customer complains How do you know they are being Fair?
