Well it's late and I am ready to head off to bed, but I thought I would do a quick post on a pencil case I made. I will most likely give this to my nephew who will be visiting in a few days, but I will see, he might prefer a real toy!
I have this deep fear of zips! I don't mean I am afraid of zips per se, just a fear of how to put in a zip. After trawling the net and Utube for tutorials and advice from my design manager (aka hubby) I made a pencil case!!! It took me two evenings can you believe, but I wanted to be sure to have it straight and I unpicked the zip at least 3 times to make sure it was centered, where the fabric on either side of the zip were the same distance from the zip. I tell you I was in such a state trying to do this and its ONLY A ZIP!!! But hey like everything if you have never done it before it can be a very daunting task!
Finally I am in the process of preparing a tutorial for a quilt block which I hope to have up soon so keep checking in! :)
