From the TeeZeeTee Research Laboratories..

Problem definition:
  • You want to have tangling supplies available wherever you are, whenever you need them.
  • Taking a full kit along with you, while it gets you points for dedication, is a little awkward.
  • Putting your beautiful tiles in a plastic bag gets you negative points for style.
What's a Zentangle artist to do?
I wondered the same thing myself when I realized (pause for head slap here!) that I own a sewing machine, I know how to sew, I can design things, I can make things...
And voila! The Travel Portfolio sprang into existence!
Whatcha got here is a durable duck outside (in a color suitable for tangles made with a fabric pen) and an inner flap/pocket/dohickey that's exactly the right size for a small grilled cheese sandwich or a stack of 13 tiles (13 is a Fibonacci number, btw) and a pencil, plus two on-board elastic straps for keeping your pens from wandering off.
The sample you see here is only one of several lining options. I'm selling the Travel Portfolio, fully stocked (with a .01 pen and a Graphic 1 pen) for $19 (usd) plus shipping (domestic rates are $4.95 flat rate).
I'm working on setting up the e-commerce site now, but if you're interested in the Travel Portfolio, email me and we'll set up a shipment. I've road-tested these for a while now, and they are durable and attractive! Fun stuff! Check out the Travel Portfolio Options page for color choices.


  1. This is So Clever!! Do you think you might be able to ship overseas? :-) ...can you let me know at kit[at]dreamscribedesigns[dot]com[dot]au ?? Want one!! ;-)

  2. This is brilliant! I usually carry all the pens and tiles in a ziplock. Do you have a tutorial or instructions for how to make one yourself?
