A fun - but essential - project

On the way to school this morning my oldest daughter discovered that the pencil pouch I had made her 2 yrs ago finally died :( With pleads that the replacement NEEDED to be out of the exact same fabric.....she got lucky, and I got to play :)

The result.....
New pencil pouch

Since she said nothing about the design being the same I got to try something new.... I'm afraid I sew about the same way I cook...... I stick fairly close to the directions the first go around but from then I I try a bit of this and a bit of that. The size of this pouch? Well it was the size of the fabric scrap I had left minus about 2 inches to fit the zipper that I happened to have on hand.....The pattern? Well I kind of went by that I remembered doing something similar to the other day. The result? She's happy and I've got a few new ideas that I want to try... anyone need a pencil pouch made?

I love it, very cute. I was thinking the other day that I need to do some more sewing. I miss you at the store but I'm glad you're getting time to spend with your family. Hope to see you around.
