handmade christmas

Hi everyone,
Let me introduce my handmade pencil case! About a month I decided to make gifts for my nieces for christmas. As they are all under the age of 6, I thought a straight forward introduction to sewing would be pencil cases. Did I mention I have never sewed anything outside a quilt since high school - turns out its like riding a bike! This is the first of three that I need to make over the next few weeks to make international shipping timeframes. I'm super impressed with how it came out once I got my head around sewing a zip in. I didnt imagine I would be able to gift my first attempt, but this has turned out great. Thanks has to go to the pattern writer Elizabeth of Oh Fransson. The instructions were very clear with pictures at each stage. This pattern is well worth purchasing.

Yah to a handmade christmas! Right, back to the sewing machine. I'm looking forward to sharing the next three pencil cases. Have a good weekend.
