This week's assignment is a cute little pencil case. It's adorable.
I have a philosophical struggle with cute little things. I admire them for their cute littleness but in a house filled to the brim with the dailiness of life for five, I can develop inappropriate levels of anger for inanimate objects that don't serve enough purpose. So a cute little pencil case? Just...no. But widen it by an inch? Mama has a much-needed sunglasses case.
I should have widened it by an inch-and-a-half, but I'm pretty happy with it.
While the original pattern made a case so narrow that it only held a few pencils, with a little widening like this I can imagine making this project again.
Eyeball is from Ikea's Vannerna Titta print.
Lining is Seedpod in Stream from Kate Spain's Terrain line.
Scraps are Lizzy House's Pearl Bracelet in Aqua Blue; Novelty Fan in Reflection from Kate Spain's Good Fortune; and Sweater Check in Aqua from Aneela Hooey's Little Apples.
Sunglasses are from Ann Taylor Loft two years ago and I love them so.
