We did some back-to-school shopping before our Ferragosto trip to London. How we did it, I have no idea, but we managed to forget to get a pencil case. While we were gone I got a big order or fabrics in and going through it Mia discovered a chunk of Stitch print Disney fabric and we decided that I’d make her a bag out of that.
I used this pattern from Noodlehead.
It was very well written and easy for me to follow and very easy to make. I did have to redraft the actual size and shape of the bag from a pouch into a long squat case, but I do a lot of math and calculations with GGApothecary so I was surprised how easy it was for me to visualize the new dimensions.
I used a light interfacing on the lining and a stiffer one on the outside panels to give it some body. I will have to make and add a zipper pull for little hands so it’s easier to open and close.
Overall, though, I love this project and plan to make more!
