Pencil roll finished – NEXT project!

I didn’t end up finding a tutorial that I was happy to use. There was a lovely one with a different type of fabric for each pencil, but that was too hard cause a) it meant dragging out 26 different fabrics that work together, and cutting them all, and b) I really don’t have a great variety of fabrics to suit boys or men, LOL.

So it was full spead ahead with Buzz lightyear, and some robot flannel for the inside. The flannel is better to help the pencils stay in, and I also added some quilt batting inside so that the pencils would kind of nestle in and not slide out. I know some people make the top half longer, so it can flip over and hold the pencils inside. But this seems to work ok.

Next on the list is some more clothpadshop sewing. I’ve started some cutting out, and have some other things on the pile. I’m going to be chomping at the bit to get to that newly arrived fabric though!
