Sew an awesome marker roll, makeup roll, and/or toiletry for yourself or to give as a gift! This idea began when I wanted to create a birthday gift and felt this would be perfect for a cousin of mine. She loves to color, loves butterflies, and colors really well during her spare time. With this in mind, creating her a marker roll sounded really cute and fun! I watched various videos on YouTube to get some ideas and this video from The Crafty Gemini was very helpful especially making my first one. For those of you who don’t sew, your local fabric store should carry a Pellon EZ Steam II Two-Sided Fusible Tape or you can also shop online. This option is an alternative for those of us who may not have a sewing machine or sewing is not preferred. If anyone is choosing to go with the Pellon or sewing option, have fun with choosing the fabrics of your choice. Whether it’s sewing or ironing down the material or even hot glueing all the pieces together, this project becomes a treat. The completed project is a joy to use and own. The functionality and versatility of this roll is endless. I wish I made one for myself!
The length of this marker roll is roughly 32” in length and 8” in height and 20” in length for each piece of ribbon. With the length and height of this roll, it allows for multiple options in what the roll can hold. As my cousin grows she can have various compartments to store her treasures. With my experience in making this roll, having at least a 1” slot throughout the roll is a good size compartment. Especially when sewing, allowing enough seam distance is crucial. I varied the sizes of the compartments throughout the roll to give the endless opportunity in storing all the fun items a girl can own.
