We’ve had a very busy but very fun summer. The last 6 weeks have gone in a flash, which is rather sad really. Here we are on the last day of our holiday in France.
Our eldest starts high school today, it feels like a huge step towards teenage-hood. She requested a new pencil case earlier this week and rather than buy some plastic tat I asked if she wanted me to make one.
We decided on a boxy pouch with lots of space for a calculator and geometry set (I had to look up what that was because i couldn’t remember!). She chose some of this Road 51 bundle that I bought recently
I decided to go the extra mile and make some quilt as you go panels for the body of the pouch. There is a great tutorial on QAYG here
The boxy pouch was a surprisingly easy make. I used the tutorial from pink stitches blog.
A very pleasing make:
