The Ruby Rabbit has a fantastic Etsy shop, filled with all kinds of creative things. Several of them caught my eye, but one really caught my eye… a magnet made from a domino. She had glammed up this domino, and added the following saying, “Friends are like Pockets…you can never have too many!” Clearly, this magnet was made for me! Well, for me to be able to give to you, anyway… because The Ruby Rabbit is today’s sponsor!
She’s letting me give away two of these adorable magnets – one tonight to one of my followers! The other will be saved for the mega-prize-bonanza on Sunday, to someone who linked to the Pocket Linky, as we celebrate the end of Pocket Week!
This project is for pen pockets – I can never find a pen when I need one. Little Moore, however, can always find a pen when he wants to. Or a marker. Luckily, he writes on himself more often than he writes on the walls (easier cleanup).
To make finding pens easier when I’m out doing stuff – I made this zippered pouch that has elastic straps to fit over my binder. It would also work great for a sketch book, or small notebook (if the elastic straps were shorter. I added pen pockets on the front, so that I can always see if I’ve got a pen, and it makes the pen super handy. The zippered pocket can hold a cell phone, keys, a couple dollars, some gum… whatever else I need.
This project was inspired by Noodlehead’s Gathered Clutch (without the gathering) and this Binder Envelope over at Bolt Neighborhood, and I combined the two ideas and added a pen pocket (because you can never have too many pockets)!
