I don’t know how much longer I will be able to sew useful small items for my son that he gets excited about. Connor turned 12 earlier this summer and he is quickly turning into a young adult. While there is some eye rolling and occasional sarcasm and the fact that he has been taller than me for almost a year (yikes), he still is so young and loves simple things – like drawing. He loves to sketch in his notebooks and write stories and just use his own creativity to make magic.
I sewed up this canvas pencil pouch for him to hold his pencils, small pencil sharpener and eraser.
This is the canvas pencil pouch from Noodlehead. For the fabric, I raided my canvas scraps. The robots are kokka (I believe). I had such a small amount of this fabric left – even smaller now. The stripes was leftover fabric from a stadium cushion I made years ago – you can find that tutorial and post here. Inside is lined with plain unbleached canvas.
I do need to invest in more interesting zippers I think…..
