Patchwork pressies...

Two simple patchwork pencil cases ready for the girls to give as birthday presents in a few weekends time...


Some Posy mini charms, along with mirror ball dots for fun(ky) interiors; and not too shabby zipper end tabs, because that is obviously what the 7 year olds will be checking out!

Being so organised will probably mean that I will put them somewhere safe and have a last minute panic trying to find them again!

I am knuckling down for four consecutive days at work, but there'll be a long weekend reward at the end of it; please excuse me if I get progressively grumpy as the week goes by, I am such a lightweight.

  5. You are organised. Great pressies and if you fill them with choccies you won't forget where they are because you will keep going to nick some.

  7. Lovely pencil cases, I really like how you have done the zip ends, how do you do them like this please? I'm with Susan and the chocolate idea, it would also be a safe place to hide it from my children :) thanks for the suggestion!

  11. Your girls have such lucky friends. These would be good for keeping crochet hooks in too, although I imagine the 7 year olds are not bothered about that.

  12. These are so perfect! The zip ends are definitely something to be proud of. I agree with the comments about chocolate and telling us where you hide them (just make sure it's not in a warm place, or else you'll be making new pouches to replace the ones with the melted chocolate all over the inside...) :)
