Here is the second pencil case I made using the Sue Kim pattern. Details about the pattern are here and the first pencil case I made is shown here. This one is for my niece.
The only 'gripe' I have about Sue Kim's book is that she does not give the seam allowances that should be used. I thought they were a 1/4 inch, but I think they were 5/8 ths of an inch. I am glad I got it wrong because these pencil cases are very small, so an extra half inch in the width is not a problem. It is a glorious book though, and I have had a 'zillion' compliments about the messenger bag that I made using the pattern from her book. And there are quite a few more I would like to try.
I have a new follower! Go and have a look at Maria's blog about the Spanish doll Chabel which was made in the 80's and 90's. She has a marvellous collection of these dolls and their accessories. I can't believe you could get so many things for these dolls. Just click on the google translate button to select English.
Merry Christmas to you and yours, and happy sewing too!
