Leather Pencil Case

I've had this bargain scrap of soft leather for years and not know how or what to make.

After searching unprofessionally for a pen mid-meeting I've decided it's obvious - a pencil case. So after some pinterest searching I felt equipped to have a go.The main lessons seem to be that you can't use pins or re-do stitching as you'll leave holes. As the pencil case is only dealing with short runs of stitches this wasn't going to be a problem.

I added some Liberty and vintage fabric and found a lovely chunky bronze and black zip. I decided to go for a box style case.

My wonderful Pfaff and its IDT system powered through the bulky seams.

 I'm pretty pleased with the result.


  1. I love this Liberty fabric, did you get this from Fabrics Galore? Great pencil case by the way, I might consider commissioning one!

  2. I think it might have been - its Sydenham...
