Completed March 2009
For my first post on my new craft blog I'm showcasing my most recently completed project. It's a pencil case for my sister. She's been asking me to make her something like this for awhile now. She just went back to school to finish her Bachelor's degree, so I thought a pencil case would be appropriate. The Helen Keller quote ended up being exactly what I wanted (I found it after I started the project). It says "One can never be content to creep when one has an impulse to soar." The outside of the pouch was made with turquoise vinyl and the inside is lined with brown on yellow polka dot fabric. I made that little yellow bird illustration for the zipper pull in Photoshop. The "A" is my sister's initial. She's loves birds.
