Furry monster pencil case

My daughter requested that I make her friend a furry pencil case for her birthday, so this is what I came up with.

I used my Giant Twin Zip Pencil Case tutorial, with a few alterations.

I added applique eyes on the front; put the front zip lower and added a row of white felt teeth. I also lined the pencil case with nice soft velour:

The finished case size  is 35 x 26 cm (approx 14 x 10")

It's so soft and cuddly, I'm not sure that I would want to fill it up with pencils, but I'll leave that up to the birthday girl to decide!

If I were to make it again - I think I'd line the smaller zip portion (the mouth) with red or pink so it's more like the inside of a mouth when you open the zip!


  1. If she takes it to school, all the other kids will be jealous...

  2. Thanks Pam! The classrooms are slowly being taken over by my pencil cases!! It's nice to see the fur and colour on desks here and there!!

  3. Love this, pinning :)
