Vacation, day one

I’m still super excited that I’m on vacation, and I had a very productive first day. I cleaned up my room, didn’t drink any soda, hung out with my cousin Heather, and made a pencil case for my other cousin Rachel! I’m teaching Heather how to sew, so while she worked on a pillow case I worked on the pencil case. Lemme show you what I did:


First I attached a little piece of fabric to a little piece of blanket batting. It sort of looked like a mini blanket. For a doll. Or a critter.Then I put some lines on it!


More lines:

It looked like a small quilt. For the inside I used a polka dot print without that quilt shit. It got all sorts of fuzz in my machine. Here are the cut pieces:


I attached all the pieces to a zipper:


And then magically it formed itself into a pencil case:


Polka dot inside happening now:

I tested it out with some markers but then I put the markers back in my marker mug because my cousin doesn’t need any markers. And if she does she’ll have to get them herself.


Oh! And I remembered to wear a dress today!
