I'm taking a painting class this semester, and I've discovered that my larger/longer brushes don't fit in my trusty old artbin. A woman in my class uses a canvas roll like this one, and when I saw this challange, I decided to make my own. It's made from the same fabric that I used to make the apron I wear in class (because I'm a messy, messy girl), which is locked up in my locker at school at the moment or I'd take a pic of it too. Without further ado, here it is, my brand-spankin-new brush roll!

All rolled up:

Unrolled, with the flap closed:

All the way open (See - I told you I was a messy girl!):

Edit: I just realized the challenge deadline was YESTERDAY! Oooops! Oh well, I needed it anyway. Feel free to boot me if need be. [walks away with head hung in shame]

I love the fabric that you used! And, I like how you made a 2-tiered brush holder. Good use of the lower portion of the roll.

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.
