Something Different

I’ve seen “art kits” on the ‘net, and thought I’d try to make one.  Basically, it’s some kind of compact, portable storage for art supplies so that you can paint on-the-go.

Sadly, this involves sewing, and I have a love/hate relationship with my sewing machine….  OK, mostly hate………

I kind of like how this turned out, but I won’t be making any to sell, it’s waaaaaaaaay too labor intensive.

Here’s the inside

With stuff in it

YES, it’s a Star Wars tin for my paints, ha!

And the outside – I love the graffiti look of it.

Folded closed – it’ll have a button-loop mechanism to keep it closed.

After I’d taken all the pictures, I remembered that I put scotch tape down, in the shape of the word “ART”, before I started painting.  Here it is peeled off; I actually like it way better without the word.

Honestly, it’s just so much easier to throw all my stuff into a Crown Royal Bag………………
