Hubby requested a small pencil case to pop into his Christmas present laptop rucksack. I was only too happy to oblige. Without being too boring he wanted to keep it professional looking. I suggested using some old suiting fabric but apparently that was a bit too formal, so he opted for this Michael Miller (?) typewriter key fabric. I love this fabric and have had it for ages waiting for a suitable project.
I teamed it with an Architextures contour fabric in orange for the lining, bought for hubby because of his orienteering hobby. A cheeky orange zip and hey presto, one manly pencil case, not too boring, not too unprofessional (in my mind anyway).
It finishes at approx 8" x 3"and although it's hard to judge the scale from my photographs, it's a really lovely little size. Perfect for half a dozen pens/pencils, a pen drive and a few other small essentials. Just enough to carry for work and when travelling. I have to admit, such a simple quick project was fun. Next time I make a pencil case for me, I will make it this size.
What's your favourite quick make?
