sewing for my paints

I made a roll for my brushes that I take when we go places.  Usually they go in a big box with everything in it, that keeps them well taken cared for.  But this time, I needed something a lot lighter. So I sewed this roll, from a linen tablecloth I had.

And yes I did that too.  I had these linen pants that I wore a lot in India, actually, and have been waiting to make something with them, since they were worn too thin.  So I picked the back pockets, to be part of the bag.

I put a lining (another linen piece left over from a dress I had) and of course, a zipper.


I stamped the lining, because I wanted something secret in the bag.


And sewed it all around.  A perfect carrier-of-paints-and-everything-I-need bag.  Now I want to know what else I’m going to zipper up!  Let me think…
