First thing first…
I’m having a terrible hair day. No, I’m serious, it looks like a cheap wig. I haven’t any idea why… I haven’t done anything different in my routine. (Joking, I don’t have a ‘routine’… it gets washed, it gets dried… end of).
Back to today’s agenda. (Joking… I didn’t have ‘agendas’ in the 80s, the age of filofaxes and giant shoulder pads.. why would I have one now?)…
Last week no 2 asked me to make him a pencil case for all his art material. WHAT??? me? asked to make something? not me making something and then forcing it on them? Well I never..
I got to work immediately lest he changed his mind. He gave me his current pencil case as a size guide and I added a few inches here and a few more there…
I quilted the fabric… I chose my favourite, a gorgeous mustard linen mix and combined it with a red zipper for a retro 70s vibe…
…and doesn’t it look great?
… subtle quilting lines, sturdy natural fabric… spacious..
Yeah… about the ‘spacious’… it turned out a tad too big.
A lot actually.
Here’s a shot of the crochet cover (16″ x 16″ to give you an idea) fitting nicely inside. Not even that snuggly.
Let’s just say it could easily accommodate No 2’s rugby boots – size UK 11 (US 12). Easily.
Let’s just say you could use it as a weekend bag.
Let’s just say No 2 rejected it.
