I understood I'm allowed to post here, for once ... I hope I understood well ... So, let me explain.
My husband collects pens (I do too, but he has many more than me ) , and asked me about 2 years ago to sew him penrolls. I made the pattern to match his wishes and he proudly showed the penrolls to friends, and a friend asked me if I would sew a penroll for him. And I agreed, so I sewed and sold one penroll, then another friend asked for another penroll, and another one and ... so many penrolls (to my opinion !) that this summer I started a small regular/official home-run business.
It's really small as I can sew only 1 to 2 penrolls a week, depending on the time left by my real job (sewing helps me to relax after a hard work day ...)
(it's a regular/official business now, but the aim is not to earn a living ... just ... having fun, and to have pocket money to buy new fabrics and ... most of all ... foutain pens and inks . Most of my husband's friends have their pen rolls, I must look for new customers )
Enough chatting, please have a look on the pictures : just click to see them larger
All the pen rolls are one of a kind, often with japanese style fabrics because that's what I'm asked for. Most of them are made from cotton fabrics, and sometimes silk for the outside.
If you want more information, feel free to contact me or have a look on my facebook page (search for "la Fée Jaja bosse").
And I hope that friends of my husband who are on FPN (I know many of them are reading) will come here to say "hello, her penrolls are fantastic, I can't imagine living without mine now !!! )
