Limited editions....

A while ago, while digging through my stash, I happened upon a yard of Oodles of Doodles by Ricky Tims. I always thought that this fabric required a special project. And I found the perfect project for it. First, I made this for me.....

It holds my colored pencils...

And then I noticed that I had some OOD fabric left. After I posted my creation I got all kinds of great comments, so I set out and made another one, slightly smaller to hold sharpie markers. That one is now in the hands of the very creative Gene Black..

And finally there is this one... Slightly different than the one Gene has, but still just as cool... I used a special stitch on the tie.... Hearts! Why hearts? Because my machine doesn't have a ladybug stitch. This one here is going on a trip East across the Mighty Mississippi River. It will spend the rest of its days holding the Sharpie markers of someone who is just as talented as Gene and who currently has her markers in a zippered pouch.

Out of a yard of fabric I was able to make 3 very unique items, thus the limited edition.

I have also created another one for seam rippers out of Frog fabric (get it?? Rip It! Rip It!), but we'll have to wait until Tonya posts about it so you can see hers.




  1. Those are awesome Greg and I know that Gene loves is amazing what a yard of fabric can do.

  2. I love mine so much, just got back home and I'll post it tomorrow. Thanks so much, even TJ got a huge kick out of it. Did you free hand the words?

  3. Hmmmmmm....I need to get back home and check out how big my collection of colored pencils and Sharpies is......LOL. (I know I don't have multiple seam rippers like SOMEONE does....hehehe)

  4. Hmm.. I think I can decipher that ladybug, zippered pouch person I am sure she will love it.
    I took mine to work and showed it off to my co-workers. One of them said I need to make them all one for Christmas. She said she would store her writing pens in it.

  5. I love Ricky Tims fabric, so it is neat what you did with it.

  6. These are just perfect Greg. I made some Crayola crayon bags for my great nieces and nephews for Christmas. The kids loved them.
