It’s nice to have a smaller project to finish. I have saved every scrap of this very pink, very glittery Frozen cameo fabric from my daughter’s quilt. I framed the sisters with some Kona berry, added the blue polka dots, and used the Noodlehead open wide pouch pattern to make this pencil case (shh, it’s a secret). The lining fabric is left over from this dress (which she still wears, although it’s getting rather short.) She’s actually starting a new Montessori school (a combined grade 1 to 4 class) because the previous school didn’t have enough enrollment for the elementary program, so I think having a nice present will help with the first day jitters. I made two minor changes, the boxed corners are only 2-1/4″ (not 3-1/2″), and I like having the zipper longer, so this is a 12″ zipper.
Hmm, I wonder what I should make with the rest of the scraps? This is my August finish for A Lovely Year of Finishes (goal setting post is here).
Linking up to ALYOF August finishes party with Melissa at Sew Bittersweet designs, Pet Project with Julie at Pink Doxies, and on the first day of school, I will add a link to Scraptastic Tuesday with Leanne at She Can Quilt.
