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!
