While I was living in Hong Kong the concrete jungle, I found it hard to bring some green indoor, where plants are either not easy to grow, or difficult to keep. That was how the idea of this little piece in felt came up—evergreen and no watering needed. I believe that people still write instead of merely type in this high-tech world, and a nice pen or pencil holder is still a necessity.
My mother used to teach me how to make three-dimensional paper flowers when I was a kid. Years later I came across a wonderful book Pure Feel. Felt Cloth Design Creation (純淨手感．毛氈布設計創作集), which showcased how to make the same flower but with felt. The effect is even better as felt can bend more smoothly than paper. What a brilliant twist! The blue colour is divine.
I custom made my partner a nice (and warm) jacket for his passport. He is a big aviation fan, therefore I added a little embroidery of an aeroplane on the cover. Bon voyage!
