She picked some pink cupcake fabric from my stash along with coordinating lining and binding. And this is what we came up with.
Miss 12 had a pack of 24 pencils she wanted in the roll so we changed the dimensions a little and were able to accomodate all but 1 pencil! To finish she picked a couple of blingy buttons for the clasp.
Surprisingly, it didn't really take that long for a great result.
Definitely on the 'do again' list.
