All in a Night’s Work

A mishap with this by a student…4-DSCN7069

…reaching into her Mary Poppins’ Bag, remarking by the way, “Oh that’s where my glasses went”…5-DSCN7067

…inspired by these scraps…3-DSCN7087

…resulted in this…2-DSCN7092

So while she worked on a fabric box….6-DSCN7074

I made this to house her seam ripper (even if she doesn’t close the blade)…1-DSCN7093

Now she just needs to remember to put it away before it goes into her bag.

No pattern, I’m hoping I can remember what I did so I can make another one or two. They will make great gifts.

In the meantime, on to other projects on the Journey, Jackie

    Poor her! I even lock my rotary cutter when I put it down, even though I have the kind that’s ergonomic. You know, the one you have to squeeze while you’re cutting 🙂

    I always lock mine too. I’m totally paranoid one of the kids will pick it up. I’m sure they never will but better safe than sorry!

    I agree with you and Sandi and Kati. I have a rotary cutter where the blade is protected when I am not squeezing it. I want one if those turquoise rotary cutters but haven’t bought it because it doesn’t have that feature. As I walk around classes and workshops I can often be found closing rotary cutters. Otherwise I stay far away from those students.
