I have made a couple of tree decorations simply made from two circles of material sewn together.
Hello ,I would like to show you how to make a simple Pencil Case.... I chose this gorgeous Owl fabric
Fabric used plus a zip
1.Cut 4 pieces of fabric 2 outer and 2 lining , 6 inches x 11 inches, with right sides facing make a sandwich of the outer fabric, zip facing down and lining fabric. (It doesn't matter about the size of the zip as long as it is the same width or longer than your width of your pencil case.
2.Pin and stitch this close to the zip across
3.Repeat this on the other side of the zip right side to right side
4. And wrong side to wrong side,
5.Now pin and stitch close to the zip
6.Making sure the zip is open
7.Open out so you have the right side facing each other and pin this around making sure you line up the zip. Machine stitch this all around leaving a two inch gap on the lining to turn inside out.
8.Now trim off the zip and turn right side out
9.Making sure you have pushed the corners out you can now stitch up the gap in the lining
10.Now push the lining in and press
You can make your pencil case any size as I have shown here. I have made a larger one too
