Anyway, I wanted to make pencil cases for the Girls. For some reason, no idea what, I've been putting off making pencil cases. It's silly, as I have made lots of smaller fully lined cases. Every time I get the urge, I end up not doing it.
Anyway. Again. I decided to push the boat out and use an Embroidery Garden design. I like Reena's cases. They are fully lined with no exposed seams. There is a requirement to close a small turn-through opening at the end, but I use SteamASeam to do it, it's very easy.
I picked the size I wanted, sorted out my fabric, got started. Then I worked on some personalisation, did that, and continued.
I wanted them to be similar but different, so I did completely different personalisations. I also chose the lining based on their interests.
I'm really pleased with the results. I hope they like them.
