This is yet another "Picasso Pencil Case" from the book The New Handmade. The pattern calls for a 9" zipper and I didn't have one on hand so I shortened the pattern to accommodate a 7"zipper and it worked splendidly. I also used a quilted panel instead of using interfacing which has a sturdy structure without the crunch interfacing can sometimes give a project. I like how bright this one turned out.
If you read my last post you know that my 2 year old niece was bitten in the face by the family dog. I just wanted to update you that she is recovering quite well. Thank you for your kind words, they mean a lot. Dog bites can be especially scary and this was no exception. The ER doctor did a great job with the stitches and she will hopefully get them out on Friday or Saturday. Yea! As for the dog, my family is coming to the realization that he is not safe to have around small children (No kidding, right?). The dog's well being is certainly on the forefront of the family decision making these days. We don't want this to happen again and being proactive is our best solution.
As for the weather today, it is cloudy and raining. I have kept myself busy working on a not so little something for my nephew's birthday on Friday. I just started yesterday, so I hope to have it finished in time for the celebration. In which case, I will share photos(weather permitting) of this mysterious project.
