I was going to do a design of repeating pencils... still working on that... but meanwhile the pencil shavings caught my eye. Such lovely shapes! Photo
This pencil-shaving fabric is now available in a Fat Quarter collection too: buy a yard, get a FQ of this design and a FQ of crayons, spirographs, and marbles!

thanks Joan and Robyn! Yup, Joan, me too - I've always wanted to save the shavings - now thanks to Spoonflower I can - and without getting my fingers all black! ;o)
What a fun idea! This is great.
Pencil shavings have always had a "floral" quality to me. Great idea!
bwa ha ha - pencil skirt! oh if only I had the figure for that, that's totally brilliant! thanks Rhonda! I like the satchel and totes ideas too.... hmmm...
This printed well Kelly! Looking at it gave me a few idea on how you might use it. Firstly, the pencil skirt in this fabric is an irresistible option. I love the skirt in your project image!! Another idea was for a satchel to hold drawing equipment with matching pencilcases. A mug bag and matching tote would be fun too!
ooh, thanks Berene! I'm so glad it was fun in real life too - I can't wait to see what creative project you dream up for it!
My fabric just arrived. yippee! It looks great and made me laugh. Still not sure what I'm doing with it, but will send you a pic once I'm done.
thanks so much, Penny!
I So Like This! As usual, your good eye and sense of humor really come through.

A lovely skirt made by Sewin'Soph of New Zealand. Thanks for letting us see it, Sophie, it's beautiful!
thanks Andrea! Before I got a nice sharpener and nice pencils, all I got was little flakes instead of long curls, with or without zigzags. But you're right, the zigzag shavings are so much cooler than the plain round ones!

Incredibly creative. In the tiny preview I thought they were shells or seeds or seed pods. But when I clicked to see it on its own screen, I smiled. I have had these great curls of pencil shavings too, but I never thought of anything useful to do with them.
Oh, and it is the pencil side, not the sharpener, that determines most of the shape. The zig zag edge, for instance, can only happen on the hexagonal pencil. Not a round one.
thanks Rob and Sharon!
Rob - Ticonderoga pencils and a handheld brass Kum sharpener. I'm not sure which quality instrument made the difference or if it was both. I got tired of pencil points breaking off every ten minutes, and the leads being too far off center to sharpen well... the pretty curls are a happy side-effect!
toooo cool! love this! xxx
great design! How come I never get pencil shavings that look like that?
I love it Kelly! Would be great for any back to school project
