I'm thinking of putting a buttonhole style slit in the top of the pockets so that I can plug my 'Pod in through the flap, but this is all I have right now. I hope to make a matching pencil bag too, but for now I'm focusing on school and with gas prices I really don't want to drive home just to sew a pencil bag.
I just bought my boyfriend an apartment warming gift. It may not necessarily be "fun" but it is definitely useful and something he probably would not have been able to justify buying himself.
His roommates are horrifically messy and he hates it so I bought him a good mop (one of the $10 ones, not a crummy sponge on a stick for $2) and a cleaning bucket which i filled with cleaning supplies--things like floor cleaner, 409, ajax, sponges (make sure you get the ones with the scrubby side--they're more expensive so boys usually won't buy them but oh my gosh they're so much better). I arranged them in the bucket with some strips of paper in his favorite colors that I cut and crumpled up in the bucket. When he saw it he got this huge smile on his face and said, "...A decent mop!!"
