Sew and Tell: Pencil Case / Makeup Case
My old pencil case bit the dust, and it wasn't quite big enough for all my highlighters and pens, and cables. I sewed a new one using some scrap upholstery fabric and this tutorial: Zipper Pencil Case.
I did modify it a bit. I didn't add piping, nor did I neatly tuck in the seams in the interior as you can see here:
But it still busted some scraps and a yellow zipper I've hung onto forever finally found a home.
Mostly... it fits everything and then some.
