Back to School Preparation - Zipper Pouches

I love that my children keep asking me to make stuff for them!  They each have a quilt which they sleep under every night and the girls all have makeup pouches.  When it was time to prepare everyone for back to school, both girls asked that I make them pencil cases.

And, of course, I was happy to oblige!

First, Marianne who requested something pink.  I used some Kate Spain fat 1/8s for the exterior and the lining of the pouch as well as a really beautiful purple zipper.






For Brittany, we had to have purple.  I found some Art Gallery Oval Elements fabric in my sewing room for the exterior and a Me & My Sister print for the lining.



 



And last, but certainly not least, Kat (who isn't a daughter, but she's a very close friend of the family).  She didn't have any special requests, so I found another couple of fat 1/8s from Kate Spain and used that for Kat's pouch.




 
All 3 pouches finish at 10" wide by 7" high.  They are perfect for all their pencils, pens, erasers and even their calculator.

All 3 girls are very pleased with their new pencil cases and I liked making these pouches so much, I might have to make a few more for myself!

Linking up at Amanda Jean's for Finish It Up Friday and at Kelly's from My Quilt Infatuation for TGIFF.

  1. I love these! You must have a great pattern for the zippers. I love making zip bags but I struggle with the ends of the zippers. I love the clean lines on yours.

  6. Those are great pencil cases! I love the fabric choices! I use a lightweight fusible interfacing in my pouches. What did you use in these, it looks thicker, more sturdy?
