This is a great example of how I've been inspired by other etsy artists, and their use of color. If you look at my favorites on etsy, all of them together are like eye candy. Looking at other peoples work and identifying what I am attracted too, has really helped me discover what I like.
Spending ten years in tan cubicles must have wreaked havoc on my mind :-).
here's my etsy description:
Made from a tin can . 3.75 in diameter, 4.75 inches tall.
made with felt, buttons, wooly goodness from knittydirtygirl, flannel cloud fabric, and parts of a wool handbag.
(The same wool handbag was also used for one of my greeting cards that was selected for the upcoming book, "1000 Handmade Greetings" by Quarry Books.)
I've wanted to make pen cups for some time, but I just finally got enough stuff (the buttons, handbag, etc. to make a cool one:-)
