Sewing! where would we be without it? I took some "me" time yesterday and worked on the Zakka Style Pencil Case plus a present for my Great-nephew Lachie's 9th Birthday.
The pattern for the Colouring Wallet can be found HERE I had given Lachie one of these Colouring Wallets for Xmas (in a Superman fabric) but he asked me if I could make another one in Transformer's fabric!! Lucky for me I found some online - it is a cushion panel.
The Zakka Style Pencil Case in the original book is smaller than the one I made, as I also wanted to fit a Rotary Cutter in it. I made mine cut at 4" and added around 2" to the length. This one is my "prototype" but I'm going to make another one hopefully today. I have purchased some lovely linen which is a tighter weave and also found some gorgeous linen ribbon.
Matt is recovering well. Still sleeping lots but that's actually quite normal for him! My husband had another CT scan yesterday so we are just waiting to hear from the Specialist now.
