A stash-buster, too!
Using remnants from other projects and even scraps of interfacing, I whipped up this pencil case using the Pencil Case tutorial at Bits and Pieces.
The soon-to-be kindergartener has had fun putting pens, pencils, toy cars, little dolls, etc., in (and out!) of the pouch.
Can you tell the 5-year-old picked out the fabrics? She especially loves the tabs.
She picked stripes for inside, too, naturally!
This went together in about an hour. I think we spent about that long picking out fabrics from the scrap basket.
She really thought she wanted a violet zipper, but Big Sis convinced her red was the way to go. I concur!
