Cool Kindy Pencil Case

My eldest just started Kindergarten this year and I couldn't send him to school with just any pencil case.
I gave him a choice of fabrics and was really pleased that he choose my favourite Melody Miller print from her first line of fabrics, Ruby Star Rising. It's been sitting in my stash for quite a while now in need of some love!
The size was determined by the print - I cut 1/2 inch out from the edge of the viewmaster reels to make eight reels fit perfectly on each side. Whenever I make a zippy now I use the techniques from Oh, Fransson's perfect zip bags pdf pattern - it makes for such tidy zipper ends. I also ironed interfacing onto both the outside and lining pieces, and sewed in a stiff woven interfacing. It should last at least the year!
Inside, one of my fabric faves - a snippet of MoMo's Wonderland scissors. So perfect for a pencil case, and I love to see it peeking out.
Still plenty of finished items to blog...I just need some sunshine to take some decent photos!
