Its almost end of August and its all about back to school. In my last post my little niece and crafting buddy Little M and I made a lovely back to school pencil pot.
Little M is totally thrilled with her new stationery and loves her pencil pot but she wanted a pencil case to put her colour pencils and felt pens in. Kids demands are sometimes hard to fulfill when you don't always have the things at hand to give them. However I did not want to dissapoint Little M so we decided to make our own pencil case.
I had some spare fabric in the Back to school Bostik box so we thought we would use them.We set about making the pencil case however luck was not on our hands, the glue we had was not fabric glue and would not stick the fabric. Quick thinking was required here so I suggested to Little M that we could convert a Zippa bag in to a pencil case. I have a lot of zippa bags in my stationary cupboard for storing nik naks.
Little M looked through the Bostik box and found some patterned card she liked, some gold stars and some funky foam letters. She spelt her name out with them"Maya" . The pencil case was easy to make and for five year old very pleasing and personal. You can see how we converted our Zippa bag into a pencil case in the video below.
To make the back to school pencil case you will need:
1 A6 Zippa bag
1 sheet patterned card
Scissors, pencil and ruler
Gold stars and funky foam letters or decoration of choice.
To see how we made the pencil case please watch the video:
This craft is suitable for young children although, adult supervision may be required for using scissors.
