Pencil and Crayon Rolls


Pencil and Crayon Rolls, originally uploaded by soja.
These are going to be Christmas presents...... Trying to make use of the time I have now. All fabric is from Ikea, they are based on the pencil roll in Joelle Hoverson's 'Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts'. No lining layer as the Ikea fabric is more than thick enough. Pleased with the machine applique I added, N.B. if it's going to be visible on both sides (like the fish NOT the heart) it needs to be something that lokks fine upside down on one side (like the fish). Seam binding tape used for the ties. Crayons instead of pencils as I thought these might be easier for a young child. I like the way these came out....wonder who else I could give one to.....
