At least, that's how I dreamily sewed up this pencil roll. I putter in my mind when I sew. It's lovely.
I did suggest that I make it funky and crazy and she readily agreed. My stash is rather odd since it's all found fabric, so I knew that it would have to be patchwork to achieve the effect I had in mind.
Since my friend is a collage artist, I thought collages would be a language she enjoys, so I made two little fabric collages on the pencil roll. It was very, very, very fun. But what if my friend is tired of speaking collage? Well, hopefully my sheer joy in making this pencil roll makes up for that, so. . . .
I think I'm puttering along, sewing-style, in this blog post.
