On A Roll

It has been a bit slow going here for working on sewing projects. I have been wanting to have a go at making a pencil roll for a while now. Miss 12 had a birthday party coming up, which was a great opportunity to try it out.

She picked some pink cupcake fabric from my stash along with coordinating lining and binding. And this is what we came up with.
 The pencil pockets are fiddly but worth it. I would like to try a pencil roll with a flat pocket to compare the difference. The tutorial was from You Go Girl and very easy peasy to follow. The no snit binding is a great method, but I am yet to master it. A little tricky on this project with all the layers.

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.
