Case in Point

Hurrah!!!

The School term has begun and it’s “so far, so good (enough)” LOL.

Here is my UPCYCLED pencil case I began on the holidays. Nothing is new, except for the zipper. I had no long zippers in my stash and all the clothes in the rag basket had teeny tiny ones.
So all up, this case cost me $1.55.

The red upholstery fabric is from Thea & Sami. I have a great stash of her scraps that I’m keen to get through.

The denim is from my old much-loved jeans.
The ribbon is from a gift topper that unravelled into about 4 metres of ribbon….SCORE!

The cute red buttons are from Craft Queen.

The fabric flower is Maya Road (scrapbooking stash) with the centre cut out and replaced with a semi-sparkly humungous button.

Here is where I got the inspiration from…

I discovered homesewn by chance but it’s no longer being published…

… and I promise to God, I would have watched a million videos on YouTube trying to remember how to sew a zipper into this thing!!!!

Now it makes me HAPPY and that’s the most important thing!

My head is swimming with names and faces and bells and routines and NOISE….omgosh, the noise! I’d forgotten how busy/crazy/noisy boys’ schools are. But I loves it {{happy face}}.
I am grateful for this chance to get back to Teaching, and in my neighbourhood (so close to home), while we need this!
