Rolling along - part one


There's been quite a lot of little bits of crafting going on around here lately. Jumping from one project to another before finishing the first one has become 'the norm', hence all the blog posting in parts!


So this is part one of the latest request from one of my girlfriends. She needs a texta roll each for her niece and nephew, with twenty pockets for textas.

I'd never used my own fabric designs for these before, but just look at how perfect they are for the job.....


....you just stitch along the lines.

Next texta roll coming soon...

I love your rolls! It reminds me that I need to make something like it for my color pencils =-)

I also love that you are using your own textile designs!

There is a certina amount of satisfaction that comes from sewing with your own designs methinks. Nice work Cam.

This looks fantastic! I am about to attempt something similar for a friends little boy's birthday - for matchbox cars! Just need to find an easy beginners pattern! :-)

Love the roll! Good choice of fabrics - I wish I could sew lately. I was hand sewing a costume last night...very time staking work.

I forgot to add that the pincord is a really great idea. Adds a nice texture... and of course I love that colour.
