Project #1 - Pencil Roll is finished!

The book is so beautiful, that I have already made the pencil roll.

The instructions were very clear, so I had no problems at all. The only mistake I made was, in my giddiness to assemble it all, I put the bottom pocket on the wrong side, so I would have had the blacks on the left and yellows on the right, but I unpicked it as I wanted the yellows on the left!!!

My son was very impressed that you could match the pencil colours to the fabric.

He told me he wants one as well.

I think it looks pretty all rolled up!

It is in the 2 - 4 hr time slot, and it took me between 3-4 hours, but I did make a mistake, so if I do make another one, I'm sure I would be a bit quicker. Of course, you could make one with less patchwork, or no patchwork, for real speed! Just a fantastic fabric!

This looks fab. I enjoyed making one, so many fabrics to choose in just one project. My son was using his on the train to the West Country on Friday night and someone asked where it was from as they wanted one. He felt very chuffed indeed!
