Another Item Inspired by Gift for Granddaughter
My eight-year-old granddaughter needed a pencil case to clip into a 3-ring-binder for the start of the school year. Okay, but this item was hard to find, or the ones found, were of poor quality. So, of course, Grandma was asked to make one. Hers was made of a more elementary school themed print.
I liked hers so well that I made another of a bi-wing plane printed cotton fabric that is appropriate for a boy, or an adult. I added outside pockets for easy access to pencils or pens, and a pleated pocket roomy enough to store and access easily, a pencil sharpener, erasers, small sticky notes, etc.
Metal grommets were placed to allow the case to be clipped inside a binder, as seen in the photo here. The zippered pocket allows for storage of many pencils, etc., and/or a small notebook or journal/planner.
The lining is of a polka dot printed cotton fabric and made as so that there are no exposed seams. This case is washable and made to be used for a long time. At this writing, I have one available on my ETSY shop.
