winter T cover-up..

I have just stocked up on some new winter T's....I have only worn the white one once and managed to spill something on it, and I have been unable to remove the stain ...i think the offending food was the chilli mussels we ate on saturday night...don't you hate that...

so rather than replacing it after one wear, i changed the neck line from round to a V, and added a stitched down frill...made out of white gauze..
i am please with how it looks...i have even been thinking of what else i have in the cupboard that needs an update/embellishment...

and the only other crafting around here has been a pencil holder for school....by order from said teenager, yes teenager, not child...she says it's much easier to manage, than an over stuffed pencil case..

from this fabulous book....

i just made the pockets wider so that a texta could sneak in next to the pencil...



this was so easy to make, quick and fun...using only the smallest of scraps from the bucket...

might make some more, for the birthday stash cupboard...if i ever get to the bottom of the 'to-do-list'....

That's a clever cover up to save a t! I'm gonna' try to keep that in the memory banks. The pencil/pen roll is beautiful! I've had one on the to-make list, and seeing yours pushed it a bit closer to the top of the list! Thanks for the gorgeous inspiration.
