Even more dots

While I was in the fabric shop last week, I spotted this fabric in the bargain bin.  It's perfect for making some more pencil cases.

This time, I attached the binding by machine.  I've never had the confidence to do it before.  I've always attached one side by machine, folded over to hand sew in place.  It certainly made this a lot quicker to stitch.

I have another one prepared to do for pencils, but as I have quite a bit of fabric left, DS1 will get me some more felt tipped pens to do some more.  These are perfect as children's gifts.

That looks so cute. And definitely faster to do the binding by machine on something like this.

What a great idea, will have to have a go at one of those myself one day!

What a great idea! I should make something like that for my younger daughter who can't ever seem to find a pencil (particularly when it's time to do homework...).
