Finally got Sewfie's tension wheel out of a bind and...FINALLY finished another rev of DD's art roll!!! It's one of my "50 in 2011" goals from JANUARY.  Roll Eyes
Take 2:

Quilting swirlies:
Button on which teal magically materialized when placed on fabric!
First metal stamp attempt:


\
I'm expecting to need to make minor tweaks (on a whole new roll), but it was a fun project. She found it this morning and squealed, "Oh, Mom, it's GORGEOUS," and then proceeded to pick out each detail and exclaim with pleasure.


Yep, worth it, even if I have to make another one to get the details just right!
What I learned:
--It's best to quilt through a "sandwich," not just one piece of fabric and batting, since the cotton batting tends to pull up through the black fabric and leave permanent (?) fuzzies. (I just wanted different patterns inside/outside.)
--Sewing machines cooperate in inverse proportion to the seamstress's desperation to sew something fun!

P.S. Here's take 1:

Thank you!

Cutting out the third and FINAL (I hope!) attempt today! (The last little pocket for pencils IS too short...I was afraid of that!)

Oh, AmiDee, you should make one! There are lots of examples online of "crayon rolls" or "crochet rolls." I altered the basic shape of the red one I made first by playing with the fat quarters to give it interest, and then my DD came up with two ideas only she would know:
-- to slant the cuff so her short blending stumps wouldn't get stuck
--to include her eraser and sharpener somehow...and when I made the elastic loops, she chose the buttons as a gripper to help.

If you make one, I wanna see!
