Pencil Roll

After admiring the pencil rolls made by Bloom, I decided to give it a go myself. I don't have the stash to make the awesome rainbow background like her so I kept it simple with some Barbie prints, white homespun and some ribbon.

It contains one set of 12 colouring pencils and 2 lead pencils.

I am pretty pleased with how it turned out, especially for a first attempt.

Note to self - don't use a white background for coloured pencils again, what were you thinking!!

I have a 4 year old who would like someihting like this to use as a take with project in the car.. but recently I discovered that she marked on the armrest of her chair in the van and so for now she has lost her privilidges of having anything fun in the van for a while.
