I modified the measurements for Amy Karol's zippered pouch to make the proper dimensions for a pencil case. (4.5" x 9") I think next time I'll use a home decor weight fabric to help it keep its shape.
I bought the fabric at Bolt after spending many many minutes heming and hawing at all the choices. I love that store.
One pouch went south to Julia in exchange for my new adorable masthead (!!!) and the other went north to Shauna as a birthday gift (to come in handy at the grad school she's ditching me for).
It was another good project to practice sewing in a zipper except I had to rip out the lining on one of them and resew it in. It was too close to the zipper teeth and kept catching. Annoying!
