Next on the drawing board for Christmas are the roll-up chalkboards I've been wating to do for some time.
I got the chalk cloth from here the other day when I was picking up a few other bits and pieces.
This is a 50 cm x 60 cm piece and I think with pockets for chalk and a cloth and also binding that this piece should be about right for making four roll-ups.
In the information about the cloth it states that it should be sewn with monofilament thread so I grabbed some of that too.
I also read here about the difference between nylon and polyester monofilament thread and as I want these to last a decent amount of time I thought it was worth getting the new thread so it wouldn't go brittle or discolour.
You can see the plans for these are super-high-tech!
