Ive needed something to store all those pens in that normally clutter my living space plus, Ive always admired those pencil rolls where you can just slip in the pens and roll the whole thing up. So practical. And it takes away almost NO space which is an argument if youre aiming on de-cluttering Grin.
I used several sturdy black fabrics for the base (jeans and a bit of black dupioni silk, not so sturdy), then added the print, stitched it with my textbook embroidery stitches which was sooo relaxing and meditative to do. Next came the beads and the lace and it was great to finally put them to a good use instead of hoarding them Cool.
Long story short, here it is:
