Birthday

Flower's birthday is Tuesday. Since she'll be with her mom all day Tuesday, we are celebrating today. She opened her presents after lunch. I made her a pencil roll from this tutorial.
There is a slot for each colored pencil. Since I bought a pack of 24, some of them had to double up. Next time, I'll make the roll longer. And for those who like to count the pencils, yes, two are missing from this shot.
It rolls up all nice and pretty and ties with a hair band. In keeping with the theme of birthday, I put cupcake fabric on the back.

Our little artist loved it. She is currently working on writing and illustrating a book called Paige and the Crystal of Faith. I have no idea what a crystal of faith is, so I can't wait to read the book and find out. Hopefully these will help bring her artwork to life.

The pencil holder is darling. I can just picture something similar for knitting needles. Hmmm ...
