Patchwork Pencil Case

PencilCase1Earlier this week the children and I were sorting through all of their little school supplies and getting them ready to start a few pre-school classes at home. We had everything we needed minus a pencil case for Madeleine. Of course no little girl should have to have her supplies in disarray, so this was immediately put at the top of my to-do list. (Quick little projects like this are my favorite kind!)
A little patchwork…
A small leather tag…
A few hand- stitches…

I originally had a few scraps picked out for the project, and then my awesome mail lady, with perfect timing, dropped off my bundle of Bloom and Bliss by Nadra Ridgeway. Nadra blogs over at Ellis and Higgs and her entire blog is bright, cheerful and full of so many fun projects and ideas. Her new fabric collection is nothing less!
This ended up being a really fun little project, and I just love how it turned out. I am planning on writing up a quick tutorial in the next week or two for anyone who may like to make their own.
Until then…
