Pencil Case with a Bow


After I saw this tutorial at Kaitlin's blog, Wunderbar, I couldn't wait to make it. This was my first time ever sewing a zipper, and it wasn't quite as freaky as I thought it would be. It actually turned out goodnotgreat. Which I will be happy with for my first time. I didn't take pictures of all of the steps, because it involved seam rippers, talking to myself, and flipping and reflipping the fabric to make sure it was correct. Not pretty. Plus, Kaitlin's tutorial is excellent!

Here are a few pictures I took of the process.





 I love it! All of my pens and chapsticks fit in there perfectly, making my purse much more organized.

So, fellow bloggers, gather your courage, buy a zipper, and use up your old fabric scraps on a gorgeous new pencil case.

    1. It would be perfect for a gift! It would be really cute if it were taller and more square-like. You could put chapstick and lotion inside of it and give it away.
