I have made more than a dozen of these pencil rolls as gifts for my children's friends over the past few years. I mostly make them out of remnants of my dressmaking fabrics, although some I do sew in brighly coloured children's fabric.
Each time I make one, I wonder how long it will be used and cherished. I like to think that they will be used for decades; that some child will go on to become an artist, designer, achitect etc and will still be using this to store their sketching pencils. Dreaming? Probably.
