Hello !

 

I understood I'm allowed to post here, for once ... I hope I understood well :unsure:  ... So, let me explain.

 

My husband collects pens (I do too, but he has many more than me :D) , 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 :blush:  . Most of my husband's friends have their pen rolls, I must look for new customers  :rolleyes:  )

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 !!!  ;) )


One pen roll, two pen rolls, three pen rolls ... So many pen rolls ! Do you want one ?

All the rolls are one of a kind ...

The sakuras will be back, the japanese garden will be back ... but not together, sorry :(

I think so, but I don't know when, maybe in a couple of weeks, months ... (I'm a bit fed up with the sakuras, I sew too many pen rolls with them, I have to make a pause with them ...).

You have to "stay tuned" to my FB page or tiny shop, I'm sorry ...

But most of the fabrics  I use are with asian design ... (i think there will be Sakuras and koi fish in January ...)

Oh, made a mistake to visit this thread. I'm hunger for a pen roll from you now.  :lticaptd:

 

Luckily, your Etsy shop is empty now, so my wallet is saved. But will check back later right after you get something there.

:thumbup:

I think there won't be anything until the end of the month, I can't make correct pictures now. :unsure:

And before sewing new penrolls, I want to make something to carry pens and a small notebook ...

Very nice, I really like the style! I am more the less flashy type person, I really like the tan one in the lower corner of your first post! What type fabric is that and is there any chance it will make a return engagement to your machine?

Thanks a lot !

This one was made of kimono silk for the outside part, and cotton for the inside part. I still have the silk fabric, and yes, there is a chance it returns :) (But I don't know when ... ).

But "stay tuned" (on FB ...) the next pen rolls I'll sew will be dark blue with only a hint of grey or very light tan :) and may suit you ! (cotton fabrics)
