My creative space and another pencil case!

Earlier this week I made one of my daughters a new twin-zip pencil case.  Now since I have two daughters - I thought I'd better make a second case!

Purple was the chosen colour - so with a remnant of velvet left over from over 20 years ago when my mum made me a ball dress for University! and an old pair of cut off black jeans I got from the charity shop  from their 'free' section!!
I made this:




The denim helps the case hold its shape, and also will protect the velvet a little from leaking pens!!

After I took these first photos - I decided to add a little zip pull too:
Kids love little accessories -  I thought this one was quite cute!


To see the original case I made with the tutorial go here.

And to see what others are up to in their creative spaces this week go here.
