I've been playing around with chalkcloth again and getting in some more practice with zips - the result is a chalk cloth pencil case.
You'll be seeing a lot of zips here in the future. I ordered a whole bunch online from kandcsupplies, let's not dwell on exactly how many zips I purchased, suffice to say that I may never get through them all. And because I am impatient, I bought some off trademe to tide me over until my US order arrives. All this adds up to lots of zips. I see many people getting pencil cases, pouches and other zippered parafernalia as gifts in the future.
This one is now for sale in my Felt store. I think it looks great just on it's own, without the chalkiti (chalk graffiti) - it reminds me of a licorice allsort (black with a pink centre). You can use chalk markers on it too, these can take a while to dry off completely but give a finer (and longer lasting) finish.
