I've got loads of notebooks, I've got an ideas book, a sketchbook, a blog notes book, a wedding book, a shopping book! Lots of books and recently I got a lil tin pencil case which I love for keeping my posh pen and felt tips in.
However my sketching pencils do not fit.
And I like my sketching pencils, I like them all in one place ready to go. So I perished the stationary aisle trying to justify the purchase when I thought , why don't I just make one?
So I did!
This is a scrap of the pansy print I used for my dress. And the zip is from an old pair of jeans which is why it's at the top, this far I have no use for zips that small.
It's a pretty bodge job but it works so I'm happy, and it only took five minutes to sew.
And everything fits hurrah!
And I've got a good amount of sketching done too. I promised myself I'd try and sketch more this year to keep my eye in so to speak, and boy am I rusty !
Sorry about the lighting on these and the flare, I was in the kitchen - 1950s lady
Rikkis nan and grandad - I gave up on this because I wasn't happy With it
I think if I work hard I might get better but so far I'm just not happy with any of them
