Do you have a little one who is heading off to school for the first time? We found a DIY pencil case that would be such a sweet way to let them bring a little comforting piece of home with them as they venture out into the classroom. And if you're not quite sure of your sewing skills with this one, don't worry. These adorable fabric pencil cases, complete with zipper closures and contrasting piping, are also available for sale!
The supremely talented LiEr of ikat bag designed these pencil cases. Look at that piping! She can handle curves like a Formula One race car driver at the Monaco Grand Prix. The complete tutorial is up at Sew Mama Sew or you can opt for one handmade by LiEr herself at her Etsy shop.
