A Friday Night Sew-In Finish

Yippee - A start and finish all in one night - must be a record for me. LOL
This is a pencil roll for my daughters birthday next month - I like to give them a little handamde something as well as the 'big ticket' item that is usually on the list.
 This was super quick to make, it took me longer to work out the measurements than it did to sew it up, that might also have something to do with my maths ability though!

I love Friday Night Sew-In - because I also managed to get most of my next Gardener's Journal block made up too.  Will get that finished up tomorrow and get some pics.  If you were busy for FNSI, I hope you had a productive night too!   Thanks for looking .......................Nicky

I love what you did with the giraffe fabric. It looks great with the coloured pencils in it!

I usually get my DH to do any measurements for me. Maths was never my strong point.

Nicky, that is so cute but really sophisticated as well. It is the giraffes that make it cute and adorable but the colour and the co-ordinates that make it really boutique stylish. Would make an excellent roll up for just about anything. Way cool success!
Bah to maths. It's overrated - ROFL.
Hope the sun is shining over there.
