Pencil case

This week I've been having a go at using my new colour fabric ink pads. I've been trying quite geometric patterns which isn't very me, but I do like the way they have turned out. I turned the fabrics into a pencil case (following youtube instructions this time) and I'm really happy with how it turned out. I'm already making more.

And as you can see a bit of the mehndi on my hand in the above photos I thought I may as well show it all. One of the mums at school came in and did mehndi on the children's hands as part of Eid celebrations. It wraps around my arm!
This weekend I hope to finish off some of the craft projects I've been working on, photograph them and put them in my shop. Hopefully there will be needlecases, pincushions and pencilcases for sale.
Hope you have an enjoyable weekend and find some time for yourself. I'm hoping to find time to go to the park.
