Since I’m preparing back to school, let’s prepare an essential (well at least for me) – a pencil case/bag.
I’ve always enjoyed shopping for back to school stationary. I remember growing up, I fancied getting character pencil boxes and pencil cases. I’m a little old for those but making my own pencil bag seemed like a pretty good idea.
- Embroidery thread
- Embroidery Needle
- Sewing machine/glue/thread and needle
I cut my felt into (2) 8 x 9 inch pieces and (1) 15 x 9 inch.
With the 2 pieces, I folded it in half the long way and sewed around it leaving the top open for a pocket. (You could also glue them or hand sew them if you don’t have a sewing machine). Then, I flipped it inside out.
With the longer piece, I folded up the bottom to match the size of the other two and sewed it to create a pocket. Then, folding down and sewing the top to create another pocket. Flip it inside out then stack them together.
Once I stacked them together, I sewed them together with brown embroidery thread which could also be used as decoration.
I forgot to do this earlier so I hand sewed the velcro onto the flap. Put in some cute pens and I’m ready for school LOL.
What’s a must have in your back to school shopping list?
