Just look what one of my fabulous little pupil got me as a Xmas present!
He knows me well!!! (Well his mummy does she’s my very close friend!!) A girlie girl is what I am. Those cute pencils are just indispensable to go with my Hello Kitty wellington boots!
So now, all I am missing is a pencil case to put them into!
All right, I’m a teacher and I don’t have a pencil case… let’s remedy to that and put an end to this atrocious situation.
I haven’t done a quilted tutorial in a while and I think we’re due for one. Do you remember my lovely friend got me a lovely little handcrafted bag for Xmas? Well she gave me the rest of the fabric to use!! yeah!I just love it so much! So I will use “la tour Eiffel” fabric for this little project: 2 pencil cases.
You will need thread, quilting thread, batting, outside fabric, inside fabric and a zipper:
First cut 2 rectangles measuring 8″1/2 x 5″1/2 out of the outside fabric, do the same for the inside fabric and the batting.
Sandwich in that order: inside fabric (right side down), batting and outside fabric right side up.
Quilt the sandwich how you prefer, I’m making simple straight line because I’m impatient and want to see the end result quickly! (for the second pencil case I used zigzag stitches in different directions)
Now insert the zip: take one rectangle right side up and pin the zip facing down on the long edge of your rectangle:
Sew the zip using your your zipper foot on your machine:
