With my focus on journaling and drawing, I decided to make a pencil case for all that I will need to carry back and forth to figure drawing sessions. I had the machine quilting samples for the International Quilt Fest: Quilt Scene article I wrote and went at it.
The bag is modeled after a bag I saw while shopping at this pen store (scroll down). I didn't put the small pocket in as you see in the inspiration, though I wish I had, it would carry a sharpener and eraser quite nicely. A mod in retrospect? hm.
I like how it becomes a pencil cup, though it is a little soft and wobbly, of course.
I did all of this between 7:30 and 9 yesterday morning. My parents visited me and we spent the day eating our way through just some of what Brooklyn has to offer.
It was a great day, but much too short. Don't we look well fed and happy?
