How to Make a Pencil Case

With the new school year nearly upon us in Australia, I am making up a few easy zipperedpatchwork pencil cases. This is a great scrap buster project. The little zippered pouches can be used for all manner of things. Mine was sized to fit approx 6 pens; or a small pack of tissues; or a small notebook and pen; or a few cosmetics.

Work in Progress Wednesday: Bib Attempt #1

8 Feb

If you read my Super Bowl Sunday post you know that I was attempting to make a bib! I also stated that it may take me more than once to make it work and I was completely right! Bias tape and I don’t work well together. So here’s a little preview of my first attempt:

 

 

As you can clearly see I couldn’t finish the bias tape. I did great all the way around the bib until where you see it was cut off. I had gone all the way around sewing it carefully but instead I just sewed the two bias tape edges together and it didn’t connect with the fabric. I cut off where I messed up and tried at a second attempt to fix it but didn’t work. I also decided that the bib wasn’t thick enough to absorb all the mess that comes with babies so I’m going to see about putting a little batting in between and trying a different take on bias tape. I’ll update you and let you know how it goes!!
