Here’s some terrific fun!
Recently, I booked us a week away in Mexico, and, having C’s children’s art class self portraits and Frida Kahlo on our minds, we thought we’d make a couple pencils cases to take with us. After all, how hard can it be?
So we got a little bit of raw canvas, cut four identical rectangles, and got to work.
We drew our designs in pencil, traced over with a sharpie, and filled in with acrylics.
It took a couple of days, but by this afternoon, when the sewing machine was transferred from the craft room into the studio, it looks like a bomb went off in here!
I’m not a very good seamstress, and so had to look at a couple of videos about fitting a zipper, but, in the end, it wasn’t too difficult.
Bless the person who invented sergers!
A few final snips and…
Ta-da! A bespoke pencil case!
I love it. Now to finish C’s.
