Batman Themed Presents...

Batman Themed Presents ~ Threading My Way

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, Batman! 

We have a little member of the family who is obsessed with Batman, so I thought I'd indulge him and make some Batman themed presents.

Batman Pencil Case ~ Threading My Way

As I was really pleased with the first pencil cases I made a couple of months ago, I've used the same  pattern again this time... the Front Zip Pouch, by Sew Mama Sew. I had a couple of minor hiccups (that were easily rectified) with the first pencil cases, but this time, it all came together easily and quickly.

Well, that is if you don't count the missing strap. It's there; it's just sewn inside the pencil case... LOL!!! I didn't realise until everything was sewn and turned. I figure no one will ever know it was meant to have a strap, unless they feel the extra thickness where the strap is.

From now on, I think I'll sew future pencil cases without a strap and that will speed the process up even more.

Batman Treasure Bag ~ Threading My Way

The second part of the present is a set of fabric letters popped inside a little drawstring bag... a very quick and easy make:

I made two drawstring bags, with the second containing some handmade, knitted finger puppets I bought from a seller on Facebook some time ago.

Batman Pillowcase ~ Threading My Way

And lastly, a Batman pillowcase. As I often make pillowcases, I have pattern pieces cut out with measurements from the pillowcase tutorial by Flower Press. I find using pattern pieces easier than measuring and squaring fabric each time.

Earlier this year, I made the little recipient a Batman mask and it went down well. Let's hope he's just as impressed with these Batman themed presents.
