I had been using the small, hard plastic eyeglass holder you see above
to store my sketching and watercolor 'tools',
but my Tombo pen was too long to fit.
So I decided to make a little bag for all of my tools.
I used some black cotton fabric I had discharged for the bag's outside
and a wonderful product called HeatnBond Vinyl to line the inside.
As you can see below, it is iron-on.
My friend Marga had blogged about it a while back,
so this was a good time to give it a try. Thanks for the tip Marga!
I have since found that Pellon also makes a similar product,
I have not tried it yet, but the directions are about the same.
My new art bag really fits the bill:
I was then on a roll, so to speak, and made a few more bags:
These are all my own hand-dyed fabrics -
a great way to use up some trial-dyed pieces.
WOW! I was really pleased to learn that I WON the blog giveaway
on Deanna's blog!
I never win anything - SERIOUSLY!
and go take a peek at what I won:
a beautiful needle-felted tag done by the very talented Deanna
and an issue of Fiber Art Now!
I'm really thrilled!!!
