I found the perfect pattern and instructions for making these simple zipper pencil pouches in Craftsy's Bag Making Basics: Reversible Tote and Zipper Pouch FREE mini class (affiliate link)! I printed out the materials list and cutting instructions and then grabbed some colorful fabrics I had received from Blend Fabrics. I used four different prints from Maude Asbury's Geofabulous collection. These were the perfect to make both a masculine and a feminine pencil pouch for each of my children.
In case you didn't know it, Craftsy has a large selection of FREE mini-classes (affiliate link) for a variety of topics ranging from how to make cake pops to mastering zippers. I've taken two or three of the sewing mini-classes now, and they are great resources for learning some basic sewing skills. I highly recommend them if you are new to sewing or if you are new to Craftsy!
Another great place to find lots of FREE sewing tips, tutorials, and information on patterns is The Daily Sew on Facebook. I'm a part of this collective group of bloggers who routinely take turns hosting the Facebook page for the day.
Wondering what it means for me to "host" The Daily Sew Facebook page? Well, when it's my turn, I share sewing tutorials (some are my own sewVery projects while others are great projects I've stumbled across), sewing memes, sewing tips, and occasionally ask readers for their advice on a sewing topic. Everyday on The Daily Sew is new and exciting! If you haven't checked it out yet, please do!
