This past weekend I finally added my applique to an actual stitched up project! While searching back for the original photo I realized just how long she's been literally hanging around my studio just waiting to become something. Well, now she finally is!
Inspired by the Easter basket of goodies Stubby Pencil Studio is offering in this weeks special giveaway, I imagined how nice it would be to fill my own children's baskets this year with nothing but new art supplies and some handmade artists roll-ups made by Mama!
I recently picked up these awesome twig colored pencils and right away thought they deserved a special tin or holder for my daughter to carry them around in. Aren't they wonderful!?
I selected a Domestic Bliss print to match the bright colors of the pencils and a Half Moon Modern scissor fabric to keep with the craft theme. I added a layer of my favorite batting to add that softness and to make sure that nothing my little artist carries would break as this is surely to be slung around quite a bit!
I stitched in extra wide supply slots, to hold these twig pencils nicely, with room for more supplies!
When not in use, I think the addition of my little hanging girl applique will be a fun thing for my girl to roll up and tuck away!
To finish it off, I added an extra long fabric strap to wrap around and keep the roll-up nice and snug. In hindsight I would have added a simple elastic loop like Rachel did here.
Good thing I have two more to make to see just what will work best for my little artists!!
How about you, are you planning on making any Easter gifts?
