so it's not really a purse or wallet, but this is the best place i could think to post this.  I was at an art supply store with my boy and he was looking at pencil cases.  i looked at the price and told him to put it down and i'd make him a better one.  he had no argument there!  i used a pair of Dickie's he got that never fit right.  the weird side pocket was just the right size so i worked around that.  the inside is a black sport weight cotton and has elastic to hold brushes and things of the sort.  it zips up too.  it may look like i put the zipper on the wrong side, or the pockets are on the back...but it's perfect for him because he's a lefty Smiley

and now onto the pics!















what do yall think?

I think the pouch is awesome and your photos of it are FANTASTIC!  I've been mulling over making some pencil pouches for myself and as gifts, but since I want to use my vinyl stash, they won't be as finished looking as yours.  I may have to do that elastic trick for a brush roll, though!

i was originally going to use some white sparkle vinyl i had leftover from a guitar strap i made him, but then we remembered these pants that he already has a camera case from.  i might make him a round one to hold more random things out of the vinyl.

and thanks about the pics!  i love my camera Smiley

Sparkle vinyl is exactly what I was thinking.  I have hot pink and gold, plus other colors in various weights of other vinyls that are tempting me. 

You really know how to use that camera that you love, girl!

I was thinking the same thing!  And I love how masculine it is.

After checking out Regretsy I'm pretty sure I could sell my stuff on Etsy.
