DIY Tray Pencil Case FREE sewing tutorial (with video)
This is a DIY Tray Pencil Case FREE sewing tutorial (with video tutorial) from the designer Sewing Times.
This is a long box-shaped pencil case, with dividers, ideal to keep pens and pencils separate, or to organise pens or brushes by type or color. This neat divided storage bag pattern could also be used as a makeup bag, or for other small items such as jewelry.
When you open the zipper, the bag opens up very wide and a tray divided into three compartments appears. It’s convenient to organize things by dividing them.
When you have made one of these Tray Pencil Cases for yourself it will measure approximately 7⅜″ (18.5 cm) wide by 3″ (7.5 cm) high by 2⅛″ (5.5cm) deep.
The designer has produced a written sewing tutorial, however, for all you sewers who prefer to follow along with a video tutorial the designer has produced a 17-minute YouTube video which you can watch below. This gives all the info you need for what fabric pieces to cut.
A seam allowance of 3/8″ has been used unless otherwise specified.
