– 121 – pencil roll

Remember these?

I lost count of how many of these I made and sold and given away as presents and made for my children when they were young.  Such a clever invention.

So useful to take on holiday or at a restaurant and keep the children entertained.


I whipped this up (I had forgot how quickly these come together.  Muscle memory probably!) a few day ago, in a rare window of energy in the jet lag fog that’s still surrounding me.


I’m thinking of having a table in a local pop up market pre Christmas and I needed to see if a bunch of these might work or not.  What do you think?

It was fun making it though.  A real trip down memory lane.
