Sew what?!

I need a hobby. That's what I've decided lately anyway. I find that my time when the girls are napping is the main time when I snack and since I'd like to lose weight, not snacking would be for the best. However, without something to keep my hands busy, snacks are calling! So lately I've been wanting to sew. I've never really been in to sewing. I did a few small projects along the way but I never really got in to it before but I want to now. I'm starting to think of things I can make for the girls and I'm getting excited! If I could make them fleece pants or pj's, etc... aprons, or whatever but I have to start somewhere. So, last summer at our downtown craft fair I saw crayon holders. You can design them to hold a set of 8, 16, 24 or whatever number you'd like. I went with 18... not sure why! So, last night I went ahead and did a trial run through and it took me about 30 minutes to do. I came up with several ways to change it for the better so today, during naps, I went ahead and made another one! And, here are the results... 

This is when you fold it up for travel. Cute right?

So what do you think? Be honest! Any ideas for improvement? I have all sorts of ideas.
Any suggestions on another fun, small project? I'd love to hear about it!

Here it is laid out, the flap keeps the crayons from falling out.
