I know, I know 🙂 The First Day at School was about 5 weeks ago!
I was really late with preparations this year. And therefore I missed out all the good shopping deals not mentioning the fact nice items were simply sold out. This is how my daughter ended up without pencil case. There was no other choice: I had to make her one myself.
I used fancy fabric to make it extra nice, of about 45 x 55 cm. I sewed in some flece inside to give that soft touch on the top. Then I sewed in elastic in the measured spots to make little pockets for the markers and crayons. Once all was set I have fold it in half, places some cardboard sheets in between and sewed it all around. Then I added two lines of stitching to show where case should fold up. Some velcro for closing and the name on the top so nobody will dare to borrow it without asking 🙂
Then I made another case, a bit smaller and with snaps. This one looks pretty fancy too 🙂 The side pocket will allow to fit in different types of note pads – AWESOME! as my daughter said 🙂
Now your turn! Try and make pencil case yourself.First Day at School - Pencil Case,
