Pencil case

It all started with an ad on Facebook, and a bit of jetlag...and it ended up with nearly 50 rolls of faux leather each with between 1 and 2 m of fabric on them and a lot of scraps too... Hubby was a little taken aback when I got home with all this stash... but he kindly helped me to put it all away....

So with so much new statsh it was time to think about how to use and what to make. The first thing on the list was a new pencil case for my son because his was ripped. He picked the fabric and the style!
And now, he has a lovely light green pencil case, ready for when he starts back at school next year.
And with that, I have my first OPAM and my first item off my Q3 FAL list.
