I had a kid birthday party come up recently and needed to whip up a couple of gifts.
Instead of putting together a full pencil roll that would hold 24 pencils (as the pattern recommends in Joelle Hoverson's book, Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts) I decided to do a much smaller version.
It actually went together much faster than the full version I did before and I was able to finish it inside of a couple of hours.
Twig pencils are the cutest thing on earth, magical really. They just barely fit into the pencil roll. I think I would make the pieces slightly larger next time in order to account for their increased diameter.
And not to whine, but why oh why doesn't my local Kinokuniya book store have a copy of Yoko Saito's new Taupe Patchwork Bag book? I could really use some good long weekend reading!
