Hold those Pencils!

Keeping with my new felt obsession, I wanted to make a back to school pencil case.   This little guy is cute, quick and personable.  Using the felt makes it sturdy and makes it easier to sew as you don’t really need a lining.  Also love that it can be made with just one sheet of 9×12 felt.  We have tons of new colors at the store so I am excited for all the color combos the girls are going to come up with.  For a complete tutorial read on.
