FREE Pen Case sewing tutorial

This is a FREE Pen Case sewing tutorial from the designer Pink Penguin.

This lovely Pen Case has a beautifully bound zipper and makes use of optional patchworking with upto five different fabrics. It’s definatly a scrap friendly project and sure does have a cute triangle shape.

Looking at the end result we suggest lengthening the zipper just a little bit at each end so your bag will fully open wide to easily access what you have inside. But that’s optional.

Materials needed:

  • 5x 1 1/4″ x 9 3/4″ cotton fabrics for the centre patchwork
  • 2x 3″ x 9 3/4″ Wool felt (or other fabric of your choice) for the outer
  • Fleece batting or fusible fleece for padding and stability
  • 1x 9″ x 9 3/4″ cotton fabric for lining
  • 4x 3 1/2 inch square pieces for the ends of the bag, outer and lining
  • 9 inch zipper – or longer
  • Piece of cotton fabric for binding the zipper
  • Small squares of fabric for the zipper ends
  • Ususal sewing supplies
  • Sewing machine
  • Hand sewing thread and needle
