Sewing Mondays - Pencil Case

To help encourage myself to practice sewing as much as I can, I came up with "Sewing Mondays". This will be a chance for me to show you all the tutorials I have tried, my resulting product, and what I thought of the tutorial {I promise all comments will be nice!}. Maybe I will even become proficient enough to post my own tutorials! {Baby steps first, though.} To start out, I'll post a Sewing Mondays post every other week, but if I really get the sewing fever, maybe I'll post every week!


Happy Monday everyone! This week's Sewing Monday tutorial is a little different. The website I found the tutorial on is in a different language. However the pictures of the tutorial is all I needed to make this cute pencil case.



This is the original website {I pinned it from Pinterest}. And here is the photo tutorial:


All I really did was follow along. It was pretty easy and quick.


I didn't come across any issue and didn't have to tweak any step.


This is a great tutorial for anyone to follow... super easy!


I just love my little pencil case! I keep it in my purse and now I always know where a pen is. : )


If anyone has a tutorial they would like me to try {and maybe feature!} please leave a link in the comments!

  4. Very cute! Sadly, I don't have my sewing machine with me this summer and all further sewing will have to wait until August. =(

  9. So cute! I have to try it. I don't really NEED a pencil case - but I'm sure I could find things to put in it and slip it in my bag, right? :)
