Did I put this in the wrong category? Or do people just not like it?  Huh

Thanks, everyone! I appreciate the positive feedback.

I was re-organizing/digging through my fabric stash this weekend and I'm super excited to say that I found more of that fountain pen fabric. Woot! Here I thought I'd used it all.  Smiley Now I get to scheme new things to do with it.

I love it, he's adorable! I especially like the detail of the ridges. :-)

What fun fabric and nice job on custom-making to fit your needs!  The twill tape across the top really adds to keeping the pens safe and secure (pretty design, too!)...

I would be worried carrying around a roll of my fountain pens...with my luck, I would lose the whole lot instead of one or two at a time (don't ever hand the check out girl your pen because you might forget to get it back! Grin)...

Do you use ink cartridges or must you fill them from a well? I love the new colors in inks, but still prefer blue the most...it matches my pen!

Thanks, Alwaysinmyroom! The butterflies are actually part of a ribbon I got from JoAnn in one of those $1 bins. I had to sew it on very carefully but it turned out well. I knew I wanted to have something pretty for the folded over edge to protect the pens. I do fret sometimes that I am carrying too much precious cargo in my purse but I figure it is extra motivation to hold on tight to my bag!  Cheesy I also never let anyone else handle my fountain pens (well, except one trusted friend) but I use expendable ball points for forms and things like that. I fill the charger from my ink well but I do go through ink bottles pretty fast. I like the cartridges but I don't like cleaning and flushing the pens too often so I just stick with nice blue usually.

Thanks, yopidou & Taramor! I'm glad that you like the roll-up and find it inspiring. Somebody posted on my blog (I have a post including this piece up) that the roll-up inspired them too. The fabric inspired me. I knew when I saw it that I had to make it in to a pen holder but it took me a while to imagine the design I came up with. Thanks for commenting, everyone! Smiley

I hope this is the best category to post this project. I think my fountain pen roll-up is a sort of wallet for pens, that is my logic here anyway.

I am a big fan of fountain pens. I am not a big fan of ugly plastic sandwich bags to tote my pens in, especially since that is not the best way to store pens for best ink flow. So, I made up the following creation wholly from my imagination. It is cotton on the outside and oil cloth on the inside for easy wiping of any ink splotches and to give the roll-up some structure. Pictures!

All rolled up!

I love that it stands upright and I think it turned out looking pretty sharp. Any comments or questions? Thanks for looking! :-)

What a lovely quilt! I really like the colors and pattern.

I really like the pattern! And it showcases the fabric well. Thanks for sharing! :-)

Hello! I know it has been a long time since I posted here but I've been really sick. Before I fell ill, I finished making this quillow for my brother. It is a quilted cotton pocket and a fleece blanket. I will be posting more of the details on my blog later this week but I wanted to share here on Craftster first. Picture time!

This is the Quillow folded up.

Here are close-ups of the quilting, I did the captain's insignia by hand.

Here is the back:

And here is the blanket:

Thanks for any questions or comments! I hope you like the quillow.  Smiley

What a beautiful piece! I like that you incorporated the neat beads and stitches for texture. You fabric choices are great, I like the subtlety of the moth's whites. Great job! :-)

Thank you both! Yeah, stillatthetop, I am familiar with the original Van Gogh painting, he is one of my favorite artists. There was a Doctor Who episode where the Doctor and his companion meet Vincent Van Gogh in the last couple years of his life that is absolutely enchanting, it is one of my favorite episodes. When I saw the fabric that incorporated the TARDIS into the Van Gogh starry night painting I knew that would be my statement fabric. I get a lot of compliments when I'm out wearing the purse that are directed at the painting rather than the blue box floating in its whorls.
