finally i made myself a pencil case. had been planning about it for months. here i go...



n here's my tut...

take a piece of desired fabric, i took about 10" x 8". fold in half. cut squares at both ends of the bottoms (jordy's tip) i cut out 1.25" x 1.25" squares. also mark about 1" at top (both sides) n cut it diagonally.


when opened it'll look like this.


now u'll add the zipper. fold down the fabric about a quater inch n place it on the zipper. sew.


for sewing the other side, open the zipper completely, mark where the fabric edges meet. fold down, pin it in place n sew.


ur zipper part is done. turn wrong side out. keep the zipper half open. now sew the sides as shown.


now pinch the bottom n sew.


ur DONE! turn it right side out.


ENJOY!!

p.s any comments, questions, suggestions are most welcomed. <3

They would totally sell! You could even stencil on them and charge a little more!
