I still haven’t gotten to that pencil case, but I did make a pretty new file folder case. I always have so many papers I’m hauling to and from campus. The folder I’ve been using has been, granted, quite practical but also – just plain ugly. This is going to make me much happier! I’ll post a tutorial for the pattern within the next couple weeks. It was a very easy project – the worst part was attaching the buttons to the sides. Here’s the front:
Here it is open (with pretty file folders):
And here it is from the back and side (I had fun raiding the button box for the mismatched buttons holding the sides together):
I love, love, love this fabric line! So incredibly pretty. The semester is about to begin (so adieu my lovely break), but I’m teaching two classes I really enjoy, one teaching students to write about their discipline to people outside academia, the other an intro to poetry class. Very nice.
And, just to keep things rolling, I’m teaching a class in EQ6 next weekend. A busy week coming up but, hey, how can I not face it with good cheer when I have such a pretty thing to take with me?
Oops! Nearly forgot to mention – Terry won the patch set for the Amish miniature quilt. Congratulations, Terry!
