More side projects

This month has been so busy I haven't had a lot of time to quilt.  Plus the summer weather inspires me to make fun things for the kiddo.  First I made a crayon roll, following this tutorial, it was so fast and easy!  I will definitely be making more of these.

An 8-crayon roll.

Then I made a small duffle bag.  My mom made me and my three siblings similar bags when we were little and we used them for camping and short trips.  I still have mine, though it is starting to come apart at the seams.  This one is the proto-type, since I mostly winged it (I found some small duffle bag tutorials to help with the tricky things, but mostly it was it was simple bag to put together).  Anyway, it turned out really well:

We call it the Safari bag since the one side has a big tiger, and the ends have zebras and elephants.
We took both of these on a week long trip to Monterey, CA and they were great to have.  Now that we're back I'm trying to focus on the D9P, which I now call The Fourth of July quilt (my new goal for completion, which is a bit unrealistic, but I'm hopeful), more on it later!
