A small project I sewed these last days - a new pencil case. Both of my children are already in university, but my nephew is still in school and I thought he might like a new pencil case for the beginning of the new school year. I used three different color old jeans and the labels from one of the pairs to add some color and interest to the case. The pouch is basically the same as an old one I made for Gaby years ago and I followed the same photo tutorial.
: The case is fairly big and it fits quite a lot of drawing supplies
: The final dimensions are 26 cm x 14 cm x 5 cm
: First I made a rectangle out of five straps of denim 5 x 31 cm and then I cut a second solid color rectangle 18 x 31 cm.
: All four rectangles - the outer denim layer and the inner cotton ranforce layers are lined with fusible.
: As my nephew lives on the Black sea coast, the idea was to have a sea theme - various colors of blue, fish on the jeans label and anchors on the ranforce lining.
: I hope he likes his new pencil case.
