A lovely handmade zipped pencil case which is large enough to hold a 12"/30cm ruler, but it could also be used to hold many other things, such as knitting or crochet needles, paintbrushes or sewing supplies, to name but a few. It is very sturdy with a vinyl fabric base in a minty green/light turquoise colour and the main body is a vibrant paisley pattern canvas. It is lined with matching colour spotty poly cotton fabric which has been interfaced for extra strength. In addition to this there is a layer of fleece fabric between the main body and the lining making it even more durable. It also has an inner pocket for keeping all those little bits like pencil sharpeners, erasers, data sticks, thimbles etc. safe and sound. The size is approx. 14"/36cm long and 4"/10cm tall. It is approx. 2"/5cm wide at the base so it's pretty roomy!
This came about from a request one of my teacher friends made, she needed a long pencil case that could fit her ruler but that would also match the colour scheme of her classroom. She wanted a purple one so that's what she got but I had this lovely paisley fabric left from a bag that I had made so thought I would make use of it! I can make other sizes and colours, so if you have a specific request please let me know and I'll see what I can do.
