Back To School - pencil case
It's back to school for the girls. I love the beginning of the school year, it's always full of promise with brand new text books and new stationery!
The girls wanted me to make them custom-made pencilcases - big enough to hold all their stuff!
Here's what I made up using cotton fabrics from my stash, vliesoflix (a fabulous double sided fusible webbing ideal for applique) to iron-on the fabric shapes to create the owl (inspired of course by Petra Boase) and clear PVC from Spotlight to cover the outer and insides of the pencilcase ( you need a teflon foot to work with this stuff!!!) and measures 33 x 20cm. I'm happy with the way it turned out...I think the cute owl makes all the difference of course!
I'll be thinking of these special two, who will be starting school this week.
