So many things to sew – so little time…

Have you ever had so many sewing plans that you didn’t know where to start? That’s exactly where I found myself last night. I have everything planned out, all the pattern have been chosen, the fabrics bought and I really could just begin. Instead I was dillying and dallying and so rather than not doing any sewing at all I made two pencil cases.

One of them is meant as a little birthday present for my daughter’s penpal. She is from India so I figured any selection of patterned fabrics would not impress her much, given that the Indians are such masters at producing colourful fabrics. So I went for a Bavarian colour scheme together with a hand-drawn picture of the castle of Nuremberg as embellishment.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

At least this way my daugher’s friend will have a pencil case that is an original. Not quite a Dürer, I know, but I have to start somewhere, don’t I?

The other pencil case speaks for itself:OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

To add a little continental touch I put the German version of “Pens and Stuff” OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAon the back:
