10 Easy Steps to a Handmade Pencil Case
My aim has always been to try to sew a small gift to send home as a goody bag at our birthday parties – something useful, and home-made. Of course it also needs to cover off being quick, easy and cost effective! (This one can take less than 15 minutes to make!) Imagine sending everyone home with a pencil case. This one has simple straight seams made with standard basic sewing machine stitches. It doesn’t even use a special zipper foot! Use black and white fabric, add some fabric markers and you’ve created a “super mom worthy” handmade craft project to give away.
The possibilities for this pouch are endless beyond parties. Pencil case, makeup or jewellery pouch for a teacher or co-worker. Even your father-in-law could benefit from adding one to his luggage set, depending on your fabric choice of course!
This zippered pouch is perfect for the beginner sewist, or if you would like a quick project to make with your kids. It has 10 steps from beginning to end! If you have never installed a zipper before this is the way to go. You will be surprised at how easy it is, and how awesome it looks when it’s done. You can do it!
