Because you can never have too many pencil cases.
Well, that's a lie. Which is why I gave these away.
School is almost out here in southern France (we finish in 2 weeks) and both the big kids' schools are having what they call a kermesse.
We'd call it a school fête in Australia (to raise money for the next school year). Not sure what you 'Murricans call them (if you have them?)
These pencil cases are also based on the Noodlehead tutorial I mentioned previously. I used 18 cm (7 in) zippers for mine and went from there.
The best part is choosing the fabrics - coordinating case, lining and zipper - tons of fun (the sewing-inclined will know what I mean). The not-so-good part is sewing up 7 of the buggers.
Taking the photos was also a joy (as you can see, I took too many again).
I was tempted to go all patchworky on these, but quilting fabrics these days are such awesome little snippets of art on their own I didn't really see any need to. Plus I felt like they would appeal to more folks if they were kept on the simpler side. Some people just don't get patchwork.
Well, another Friday has rolled around, hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
