it is hand appliqued with my little fried egg flower and my favorite doodle- swirls.
the reason it took so long to finish was i was figuring out how i wanted to 'carry' my colored pencils. today i figured it out- a zippered pocket on the flap.
the motavation to get it finished is for my LA class next week in NY. as the teacher, i couldn't show up with a plan ole sketchbook now could i? *smirk*
