pencil case

I know this may make me a boring homebody, but many of my favourite Saturday nights involve my sewing machine and a glass of wine. My tolerant other typically watches the hockey game concurrently: I've learned not to be bothered by the cheering crowds and the announcer's outbursts, and he's learned to block out the laboured background hum of my machine's aging belt.

Tonight's project: a little pencil case (more whales) with a dark purple zipper and grape cotton lining. The photos don't do the colours justice! I found a fantastic tutorial on the blog Three Bears... finally the geometry of squaring bags makes sense to me! Yay!
