When your favourite niece requests a pencil case…

…you create one just for her.
Throughout August, I received many requests for the three-ring binder pencil case. Being the crazy summer it has been, there were weeks, yes weeks, when I simply did not have time to enter my studio. I checked in once in a while but did not even think about heating up the iron or turning on the sewing machine. When life is functioning at normal capacity, my machines are turned on every single day. It felt a bit weird not being in the studio every day but it is what it is. Life is slowing returning to the pace I prefer. When my sister asked me if I could create a pencil case for my all-time favourite niece, I made the time to get into the studio.
Of course, if I was going to create one pencil case, I would create ten.

My niece loves the colour purple. If I picture her, I see purple as she is usually wearing some shade of purple. She also requested an additional pocket to hold special erasers and usb sticks.

I made a few more adding the extra pocket.

Although it obviously takes more time to make a case than to run to the Dollar Store to purchase a very inexpensive one. We did the ‘pencil case test’ over the last school year and my daughters case, after a school year of constant use, remained perfectly intact, albeit a bit dirty. I posted the post school year pic of the case here.

Our test this year will be to see if the pencil case can make it through a second school year.
All ‘ready to ship’ pencil cases are listed in my shop. If you would prefer a custom fabric for the case, send me a message. Most times, I have the preferred fabrics available.
Thanks for stoppin’ by and hope you have a fabulous day!

I'd love to hear from you! Please do leave a reply...
