Back to School Sewing – Part 1

Remember these pencil cases?

Barely a year later…

Both fabric and strap has faded.

Used to look like this on the inside…

Now it looks like this!

So this year I’m using a laminated cotton. Hopefully it will be tougher against fading and dirt.

Aren’t the hippos cute! It’s a Japanese fabric I bought for cheap because it was a pre-cut 0.5m piece.

Polka dotted corduroy interior. I know… I thought about this and I know dirt sticks to it like mad, but I just liked the combination. And anyway there will probably be a new pencil case next year :P

More pictures to come over the next few days of my back-to-school sewing projects. Stay tuned!
