A quick post to show you a Christmas gift that's been sewn, wrapped and sent off via Australia Post...
... a pencil case that's been filled with writing supplies. With a finished size of 8" x 8" it fits a lot.
I ventured into Smiggle a couple of weeks ago. Not somewhere I normally visit. The ruler above was the only thing I purchased in there. WOW - whoever thought of that model is really onto something. I'm not sure why - maybe it's just good marketing - but the kids LOVE the plastic stationery items.
I was really happy with how my pencil case turned out. The exterior fabric is one piece (quilted) - so no top or bottom seams - only side seams.
Looking at it now, I wish I'd made the zipper tabs either green or purple, but I'm guessing the little recipient won't care at all.
I have another two pencil cases to make, so I'll give you details about how it's made in a future post.
Still a few more things to make, but I'm confident I'll finish.
How are you going with Christmas plans?
