Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

A Pen Wrap for my Birthday

Hey folks,
It's been a really busy couple of weeks. I gave an invited presentation, helped a new roommate move in, did a bunch of science in the field with Mrs. Inkdependence, and I've had to catch up on tons of grading. I just haven't had any time to do my regular blogging. I'm hoping that things are calmed down for a while.

My birthday was this month, and my Dad made me a neat 3-pen  wrap from scratch. He's always looking for new leather-working projects, and I showed him some of these online a while back. He decided to try his hand at making one, and it turned out really well.

All of the stitching was done by hand. He's not a fountain pen user, but he sized it well for all of my pens. It's just tall enough for my longest pen (the TWSBI 700), and the sleeves could probably hold a couple of pens each if your pens are the size of the little Diplomat Traveler on the left of the bottom picture. I really like it, and it's going to keep my pens safe and classy when I travel with them.

What do y'all think?
