I put together this pencil roll based on the instructions in Last Minute Patchwork + Qulited Gifts. I deviated a little bit from the instructions for the sake of saving a little time and creating something just right for my swap partner, but not so much that I didn’t get a good sense of what it’s like to make this particular pencil roll. It went together quickly and easily, and I’m certain I will be making another one in the future. The pattern calls for a layer of flannel inside the pencil roll, to give it a bit of stability and structure. I didn’t have any flannel on hand, so I used some quilt batting. It worked, but created a slightly bulkier roll that way. I’ll be sure to use flannel on the next one.
This is the first thing I’ve made from Last Minute Patchwork + Qulited Gifts, even though I’ve had the book since Christmas. The instructions were wonderfully clear and easy to follow. I don’t think I’ll wait another 7 months before I try another one!
