7/52 | Olivia Crayon Roll

7/52 | Olivia Crayon Roll

I am inordinately proud of this item that went into the big Olivia basket, because I sewed it myself. With my sewing machine, Ma! (She is also inordinately proud of me, I bet. Or exasperated that it only took me eight years to realize that I might actually like to sew).

I've decided a few things about sewing: it is very hard for me to understand sewing directions, no matter how slowly I read them out loud trying to get them, and I am unafraid of changing the directions if I can't figure them out, no matter how easy they are (there was no button in the original directions, but I was not smart enough to understand how the ribbon was supposed to be attached otherwise).

But it turned out! Hooray!
