I decided to make some pencil cases. I had one in the shop a while back, but have contemplated re~listing it since it didn't sell.
I designed a newer version last night, after being inspired by some of this Japanese fabric I finally got gutsy enough to cut into and make a present with the other day ; )
I love the dachshunds, of course, and the little gingham on the side-tho' a little more difficult to work with-lining up those little squares- but the results are worth it I think.
Also added a little 'tab/loop' on the side for fun, and hand stitched a button on it. It all looks 'zakka' to me. Which I haven't done in awhile.
The interfacing is one that makes it stiffer and stand up by itself. (Of course I cannot find anymore of it in any of the stores I have around-I've been to all of them in the past 3 days. I've hesitated to use it for so long, now I find out I like it and can't find it anymore~just my luck :0 )
The 'pencil case' could also be sued for cosmetics or whatever other small items, you'd like. Personally, I'd probably throw my little knitting notions in it. I just love little bags to organize things in : )
What do you think?
Going in the shop soon : )
