so yesterday i kinda got fed up with my pencil case.. actually, when i went to sit with some friends it got a lot of attention. because the case i NOW use is the old cardboard casing of an external hard drive... YES. (it was a small hard drive, so it's not a gigantic case)

i was pondering what i could do to the pencil case that i would make out of fabric.. how can i embellish it? the last one i made says "Fantabulous!".. not that again. and now i'm so much better at making embroideries, although i have no imagination (YET! it has been locked away for a while so i need to practise!)

so.. how about the text "colorig box"? the pens that need a new case are coloring soft tip pens.

here is the embroidery, i'm thinking i'd use black and pink for the final version, MAYBE. i don't know. i don't want a white pencil case... Smiley

I'm just learning about embroidery machines. Did you type out the text in a font the machine already had? It's really neat.

no, i don't use fonts that exist because it will come out looking better if you individually create all the stitches. besides, there's no such font as this one, i drew it by hand Smiley that's why it's so horrible ;DD it was just a try-out.
