I've been at Pink Chalk Studios tutorials again! This time its the Coloured Pencil Roll tutorial. I think it will make the perfect birthday gift for my niece, Nina. She's a crafter too, so I wanted to give her something handmade and something she could use for her own creative projects.
My plan was to use only fabric from my stash, which I did stick too, though it showed up some surprises. I have a lot of fabric but absolutely no yellow and almost none of my favourite colour: brown.
The green grosgrain ribbon was a lucky find in my trimmings box, the Japanese fabric on the outside of the roll was from Reprodepot.
I love the colourful turtles on this print, it helps pull together the many colours inside the pencil roll. Nina is a surfer and animal-lover as well as a crafter, so I was hoping the touch of ocean and the fancy coloured pencils would be great gift.
