Hey friends today I’m hanging out over at Sew Vanessa Craft sharing this fun back to school personalized pencil case tutorial while Vanessa is on maternity leave. It’s one of those projects that’s quick, easy, and can be tweaked to accommodate tons of different sizes. Also it’s another good one for using scraps which is always a plus for this fabric hoarder!
If you’re stopping by from See Vanessa Craft welcome! I hope you take a second to peek around. You can see some of my favorite posts in the right column. Also if you’re a blogger I do an anything goes link party every Wednesday I’d love you to link up. Last week’s party is still going strong. And if you are a sew-er I have a fun monthly challenge that I do with Bev from Flamingo Toes where we sew a few things for ourselves each month I’d love to invite you to join in by using the hashtag #sewourstash wherever you post your sewing pictures and come back and share your links in the comments section of our Sew Our Stash posts the last Thursday of each month.
- outer fabric 6″ x 25″
- lining/flap fabric 6″ x 25″
- Strap fabric 4″x 10″
- sew on snap
- rick rack 6″
- Applique fabric
- Heat bond
Start by sandwiching the rick rack between the right sides of the short end of the fabric. Sew down catching the rick rack. Sew the other short sides together so you have a tube and when right side out it looks like the picture above.
Then folded fold the pouch sothat one the fold hangs over sew up the sides (don’t catch the flap). Sew on a snap and you’re done. You can tweak the size of the pouch very easily making this perfect for all kinds of bags and gifts. Hope you like it.
