Back-to-School Pencil Case

Today we continue our Back-To-School series with a Zippered Pencil Case. Quick and easy to put together, this handy little pouch will hold pens, pencils and plenty of odd bits.
The cases in the photo show off FreeSpiritParson Gray prints and Parson Gray Renaissance ribbons. (See Renaissance Ribbons for more of your favorite Rowan and FreeSpirit designer ribbons.) However, you can easily change the look from one of masculine utility to anything that suits your school age child. Looking for a feminine touch? Select a sweet floral print and add rick rack or lace. Or is it fun and funky you require? Choose bright prints and go wild. It’s entirely up to you.
Each case only needs two 10” squares of fabric and one 9” zipper. So grab your favorite FreeSpirit designer fabrics and make some for the kids in your life. While you’re at it, make one for yourself too!

This is perfect! Will be great for the upcoming August charity sewing project at Hopeful Threads! Thank you for sharing!

You can also use larger squares, and make cosmetics bags. Add lace, pin tucks, or use embroidery to personalize them to make as gifts. Just sew, fill with small gifts, add a tag- instant gifts.
