Toy Car and Crayon Clutch

For my little boy's second birthday I wanted to make him something special, so when I saw Jill's Cozy Car Caddy on So you Think You're Crafty last week I knew that would be the perfect gift! It's made from an old pair of jeans, scrap ribbon and scrap fabric.
I love that Jill made one half of her "Cozy Car Caddy" a car holder like this and the other half was an adorable road made out of black felt.
I didn't have black felt, so I decided to make something a little different out of the other side of my clutch...
I made it into a crayon holder with a little flap so that the crayons wouldn't share their beautiful colors with the cars on the other side.
The middle is a little pad holder.
Owen loves it and it's a great distraction when we're eating out.

This is brilliant! Crayon rolls were what inspired me to do the car pockets in the first place. I wish I would have thought to combine them!

very cute, as always. :)

Do you have a little tutorial for this..or at least some measurements. I just printed out Jill's tut, but think a combo like this would be good! :) Thanks :)
