Reading nature's signs
Oats, oil, salt, lemon and egg...its bath time

Quick, cute and frugal recycled birthday gift

This weekend was our third birthday party in as many weeks. I have been feeling rather uncreative recently so resorted to books for the last two gifts. But for today's party I was determined to make something. So last night I made this pencil and note book roll. I hope she likes it.

I made it with opp shop sourced fabric and ribbon, and denim from an old pair of jeans. I love how easy the tutorial was, and given that i'm an impatient sewer, I loved that it took under an hour (quicker than going shopping!).
