I remember mentioning my project I needed to complete before the Baltimore Paperthreads Retreat...but don't think I ever actually shared pics of the completed project.
It was honestly the first sewing (other than knee patches and waist "take-ins") that I have done for some time!
I wanted to take my copic markers along on the trip with me, and have used a clear tupperware style box to travel with previously, but spent too much time sdigging through the box trying to find the color pairings I had available. I tried rubberbanding the groups of 3 "side-by-side" shades, but spent so much time unbanding and repacking. So, I decided to make a roll up marker wallet.
It looks much like a make-up brush roll, I just measured my markers and figured out how big it needed to be to hold 72 markers (24 sets of 3 color pair-up). I use a mixture of sketch and ciao pens, and wanteed both variations to fit in the same sized pouch. It's snug for three sketch, and a bit loose for 3 ciaaos. Here's just a peek as you unroll it. I wanted to make sure when it was rolled up that none of the markers could fall out, so folded it back over itself.
Once it's completely open, you can re-roll it inside out with the center tucked back out of the way. Now I have a roll that can stand up on the table in front of me...and is perfect for keeping all the colors in order!
I was even able to color in images on the plane this way!
Thanks for looking!
