A bit of fandom for back to school....

It's almost time to go back to school with only a week remaining. New books are being covered, lunchboxes and drink bottles checked and pencil cases are holding pretty new, sharp pencils.
These are two new pencil cases for a couple of special girls. Both feature their favourite bands. One is having a birthday and is mad keen on One Direction. The other features the Australian band, Short Stack and their logo, Maurice (the skull and cross bones).
I made R a version of the Short Stack pencil case some months back. Long story but she wanted a t-shirt to go to the concert and she wanted Maurice on it. I had carefully traced and cut one from visoflex only to have R insist that it was wrong. I'd made it in negative (white out of black) but R wanted positive (black). It wasn't a drama and I made another but I didn't want to waste this lovely Maurice so he was turned into a pencil case....much to the admiration of many of R's friends. So this is another (positive version) for one of her dearest friends who introduced her to the band in the first instance.
Linking up to Crazy Mom's last Finish it up Friday!


  1. That is cool that you mad it with the band designs. Great finish.

  2. If that is for who I think it is, you may well hear the squeals of delight for miles!!

  3. I've never heard of either of those bands but the pouches are great!!
