pencil rolls and journal covers

another party this weekend, so a pencil roll and journal was requested.

the batting I had on hand was a little thicker than needed for a journal cover, but it turned out ok.

what I particularly like about this set ........



is it is all repurposed from one of lil sis's cute dresses.



next to it is a thrifted pillowcase I was going to use as well, but I got it all out of the dress. even the white in the pencil roll and the inside of the journal cover is the lining from the dress.

You certainly have perfected those pencil rolls. Great recycling. I am here sitting on the 15th floor looking out over Broad Beach. Will give you a call to catch up for coffee.

Well done on the recycling. I don't think I could bear to cut up Missy Moo's old dresses... they are too cute!
