Super Easy Pencil Case FREE sewing pattern
Here’s a Super Easy Pencil Case FREE sewing pattern, for a zipper pouch that is similar to the pencil cases that you might have had in school. If you want to do so, it is also super easy to customize, which the designer will show you how to do.
The Super Easy Pencil Case is fully lined and has a top zipper. But where most people struggle with zipper pouches is the bit where things have to be turned out and sewn. This can cause puckers at the ends of the zip and all sorts of nasties. Well, not with this designer and her awesome project. You don’t need to turn the pouch inside out and pin stuff. When you add the zipper you will bind that bottom edge.
It looks amazing that way and is perfect for creating a flat zipper pouch with absolutely perfect zipper ends.
This pouch is perfect for all of those little around-the-house needs. Pencils (of course) and also knitting needles, toys, first aid bits and pieces and a portable sewing kit for your suitcase. Have one in the car too with the sort of things that your family always seems to need. It is perfect for keeping small baby or pet needs in one place too.
The length of the bag is determined by the overall zipper length including the end tapes. This makes it super easy to customize and means that you can use what you have.
What you will need to make a Super Easy Pencil Case:-
- One fat quarter for the outer fabric. The designer used canvas,
- One fat quarter for the lining fabric,
- One fat quarter of foam interfacing. The designers favorite is Style-vil by Vlieseline,
- One 12″ metal zipper,
- 24″ bias binding to coordinate, or a bit of extra fabric to make your own bias tape. A fat quarter extra makes plenty.
- Something to decorate the zipper pull. The designer used a small piece of leather but you could use vegan leather, a charm, or a piece of ribbon,
- Basic sewing supplies,
- A sewing machine.
The designer points out that if you chose to make a pouch that is a lot larger than hers then you may need more than a fat quarter of fabrics.
