A new year and a new pattern. This is a new PDF sewing pattern that includes two different sizes of this very useful and practical pencil case. Just in time for the new school year here in Australia or maybe a new pencil case for the new semester .

I have a new PDF Sewing Pattern in my Etsy Shop. It is called Big and Small Zipper Pouches. Zipper Pouches is very fun to sew and has so many uses. I think it is almost impossible to have too many of them. Very often it is enough to use leftover fabric scraps and zippers. They can also easily be made in to any size.
This pattern is, like my other patterns, an easy to follow tutorial style instructions with lots of photos. There is three files to download. One is with all the instructions, one is the pattern pieces for printing on letter sized paper and one is the pattern pieces for printing on A4 size paper. The files with the pattern pieces you have to print and cut out. Make sure the page scaling is set to none, actual size or 100% on your printer.
Size: Big – Width 9 1/2″, Height 6 1/2″, Depth at the base 2″ Small – Width 8 1/2″, Height 3 1/2″, Depth at base 2″

I have a new PDF Sewing Pattern for the intermediate/advanced sewer. It is a laptop/tablet case that comes in two sizes and would be a great Christmas gift that could be personalised in a lot of different ways. Most of us have tablets or laptops that we want to protect when we are on the move.
The new school year starts this coming week here in Australia. It is a very hot ending to summer holidays, it is 39 degrees here in Melbourne today. This year it is only my youngest that’s going back to school. She has two more years of high school and she still likes my homemade pencil cases.
I have reviewed and updated my Small Wallet PDF sewing pattern, you can find it in my Etsy shop. There is now 2 different versions of the pattern and I have made the instructions more clear by including pattern pieces to print and cut out instead of cutting instructions.
