Duncan's Pencil Case
My nephews from Townsville spent the summer at my parents' farm. During that time Duncan celebrated his ninth birthday, so I made him a personalised pencil case.
It doesn't need to be necessarily for pencils, he can keep all sorts of things in there. His name appliquéd on the outside makes it nice and personal. I matched the lining to the appliqué, and finished it with a matching zip. Everything, except for the zipper came from my stash. Why is it that you can have hundreds of zippers and yet, rarely are any of them suitable for the project you are working on?
SYST: I used approximately one fat quarter for this project.
