It's back to school time! I don't make a lot of handmade items for school, but every year, my daughter Marianne asks for a new pencil case.
She has lots of pencils and pens and a huge scientific calculator which also needs to fit into the case, so this year, I made her pouch a little bit bigger than the typical pencil case.
I used this tutorial, which I also used to make my Sunny Zipper Pouch a few weeks ago. I had fun fussy cutting some of the 2" squares (isn't that fox cute?!).
I love how neat the zipper tabs look. And I'm getting so much better at sewing zippers!
I just love those Avalon dots (by Fig Tree & Co for Moda). And every last bit of this zipper pouch was made with scraps, which is the best part!
And I'm happy to say Marianne was thrilled with her new pencil case!
I will be linking up Crazy Mom Quilts when she comes back from her social media break and at The Quilt Journal who is hosting TGIFF this week.
