Free Pencil Case Pattern

Hello, sewing friends!
I found a free pattern for you.
It is called “A Pencil Case for Lola” and it is a free download on the byAnnie Website.

There are no pockets or any extra addition on this little case.
Just a nice simple open case to store any number of items.
It has an accent strip along one side,
a carry strap,

and it opens up wide with that extra-wide handbag zipper
The inside of the case is finished nicely with little binding strips at each end:
You could use this for so much more than just pencils:

Here’s a video so you can get a better look at this easy pattern:
Have a terrific sewing weekend.

Train Case

Hi Sewing Friends!
Here’s a peek at a Christmas gift
for one of my grandchildren
The pattern is by Sew Sweetness
there are three size train case patterns included
This is the medium size

The instructions are pretty straight forward
If you are an intermediate to advanced sewer,
you shouldn’t have any difficulty with this one
I used straight-line quilting
to hold the foam between the fabric layers
on the body and top of the case
The back tab that joins the ends of the double pull zipper
allows the lid to be “hinged”
The double pull zippers are available in my Etsy Shop
The inside features a zipper pocket in the lid
and I chose to embroider my grandson’s name as well
The embroidery font is from Willow Embroidery Etsy shop

Looking down inside the case,
you can see all the handy little pockets
that line the interior
They’re great for those small objects
that might otherwise get lost

There’s also plenty of open space to add larger objects
These train cases aren’t just for children
In the right fabric, they would be
beautiful gifts for brides/bridesmaids, best friends, or yourself
What a perfect baby shower gift they would be
filled with baby-themed supplies such as
small-size lotion and powder, diapers, burp cloths, etc.
 If yo would like to chat,
I would welcome your comments
Are you sewing any gifts this year?
Have any excellent sewing week

Electronic Device Cases

Hello, hello, sewing friends!
Wow!  Is that sensory overload, or what?
Those big, bold, beautiful prints and colors are from #Tula Pink‘s collections:
Eden, Chipper, and Slow and Steady
I love how all her lines of fabric work so well together

This is the pattern I used for these beauties
It is a #byAnniepatterns and it is very well written and easy to follow
It also sews up rather quickly
All in all, a satisfying sew

The pattern includes tablet cases in two sizes
One to fit small readers and tablets
Such as #iPad mini, #Kindle Fire, #NookTablet, etc.
And one to fit the larger tablets
Such as iPad, #Samsung Galaxy Tab, and similar size devices 
My finished outside dimensions (with the flap closed as pictured above) are:
Small – 10″ wide x 6.25″ tall
Large – 11.75″ wide x 8.5″ tall

The back of the case has a nice, padded zipper pocket for all your personal items

 Hook and loop tape makes it easy to open and close
 Devices without another cover will fit inside,

 

but if you have an iPad with one of the iPad magnetic covers,
it will fit as well

So there ya’ go,
A quick, easy, professional looking gift
for someone on your Christmas or Birthday list
Or just for you!
Have a productive, fun sewing week.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
I enjoy your company
