I saw this photo the other day and fell in love with the wallpaper... I wish I knew where it was from! And because my handbag has slowly been converting into a giant pencil-case (I actually found three hole punches, a craft knife and two gluesticks in it the other day!) I decided to make a pencil-case out of fabric inspired by the wallpaper.
So I got some calico and painted tiny little triangles all over it with fabric paint and then set it with the iron. I turned my fabric inside out and zipped along the sides with the sewing machine. Then I (attempted) to stitch on two little arrows in the bottom corner.
I ended up making quite a mess! I'm a newbie when it comes to sewing so I had lots of hot cups of coffee to get me through the frustration :) After much quick-un-picking and clamping I ended up with this...
Loving this teal colour at the moment.
PS. the lovely Soné from polliblog invited me to share a post on her blog. Be sure to check it out :)
Hope you are having a lovely day xx
