Ahem. The year is half over and my list of "twelve 12s" is not exactly at the half-finished point, but I have finally completed one:
There are now fourteen completed pen sleeves. I made them from some leftover micro suede, which works really well for these as it doesn't ravel. Felt works well too, but it doesn't look quite as nice. I still think I can get all 12 done--plus the bonus one--by December 31, but then again, I am known to be quite the delusional nutcase optimist. Hey, it's the first one that's the hardest, right?
