Out the door

I finally finished custom order numero uno: A pen holder, with a stripey tie on the front. A cool kid named Chris who works with Chainsaw asked me to make him one. He has a really fun etsy shop HERE. A lot of fellas in his art end up wearing adorable red and white stripey ties, so he wanted his pen holder to also be wearing one.

I'm a little embarrassed about how long it took me to get done, but first I had to deal with the lazies. The lazies wore off, and then I had to deal with the sick kid. I started working on it and realized all my white zippers looked like they used to be white. That means that they were yellowish, dingy, nasty, no good. So then I had to wait for new zippers. What's even more embarrassing is how long I worked on it yesterday. I kept messing up. In the end, I think it turned out pretty dang cute.

I hope he likes it as much as I do.

Now it's time to get back to work. I have more custom orders to work on. Custom orders make me feel special and fancy, even if they are from my step mom and not someone all fancy who is dying for my work. Oh wait, she is fancy. :D
