Oh I SO need this! I'm a consultant so I'm never in the same place and I don't have a desk to speak of. That means my purses, pockets, car seats...are littered with stray pens. Great idea and awesome execution, TheSapphireMoon! I'm sure your partner was thrilled.
I must make the 40 min trip to IKEA. This fabric is worth braving the crowds and rat maze. Awesome.
