Pencil Case for Aisha

Hi there! How are you? I had a rough Monday and still feeling sickly today. This post is to lift my spirit up.

Made this during the weekend. A pencil case for Aisha as the one she had went kaput. I used this super clear tutorial. It turned out a bit small, it will make a perfect cosmetic pouch for me actually. But the result is so cute, I beamed the whole time admiring it. Note that this is actually my first zipper, not difficult at all.

Aisha loves it but already asking for a bigger one to stuff all her colour pencils. I think a heavier cotton canvas would hold the boxy shape better. Will make this again soon, promise!

I lined the case with cute brown dots cotton fabric. I used fusible interfacing instead of the sewn in one as indicated in the tute.

Hmmm...mission accomplished! Time for a cuppa (and some aspirin, ouch..)!


  1. cantiknya pencil case.... so vibrant...so colorful...

    last week pun I buat pencil case tapi I guna kain jenis jeans je... lining pun tak de...
