Recently faced with the pure horror of written final exams, I needed to find some way to take only cheerful things along for the ride. While I never understood how folks can go through these things without anything personal to support them, I am a confessing lucky-charm-dependent person.... even if I am a wee bit older Grin

So here is what I made ... I guess it fits in the category of practical monsters Grin

 

a pencil case and a home for the exam-approved calculator...





Made from cotton, felt and closed by velcro Grin

And I had so much fun making the home for the calculator, that I made 2 more for classmates in blue and red. I was utterly thankful I had something to fiddle with while trying not to go completely bonkers from pure horror of exams Grin

What do I think?  I think you are FAB FAB FAB!!!  I think someone should fallow you around and take pictures of everything you do and make you an internet sensation.  I think everything you touch becomes amazing and special.  And I think these little lucky charms look like your children for sure Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know
