Some years ago I received an embroidered pencil case from my boss' wife. It has been in regular use in my handbag ever since. But alas! The inside has a plastic-feel fused lining which now is rather sticky to touch. Time for a new one.
I have microsuede for lining and a zip and matching binding so this little project will cost me nothing but time.
So when my hardanger is finished....off I go on Japanese kogin adventure.
