How To: Sew a Lined Pencil Case

You will need to cut 1 outside fabric and 1 lining, both 12"x12". You will need a 9" zipper and thread.
Sew completely around, right sides together, 1/4" from the edge and leave a hole to turn it.

Clip the corners. Turn right side out and press.

Sew one side, with the fabric overlapping the zipper tape. I like to hand sew, but you could machine sew it.

Next sew the other side of the zipper.

Fold a small piece of ribbon in half, pin it to the end of the zipper. Unzip the zipper and sew across the ends.

A cute lined pencil case that could also hold money, makeup, etc.!
