Here in N.Ireland we have really loooooooong school summer holidays. They start off slowly at the end of June, but seem to really speed up in August as we hurtle towards September!
We are already in the throws of school uniform buying in the Hollies' household!
So my 'Back to School' Pencil case in this month's issue of Quilt Now is quite timely!
I love these colours on the Essex Yarn Dyed Linen (denim).
And on the other side ......
If you want to banish your fear of zippers, this is a lovely project to get in some practise. The pattern will talk you through how to insert the zipper, and how to make covered zip ends to get a lovely finish to your pouch.
This is a really roomy pouch, so no excuses for forgetting school supplies!!
And if you'd like to get some of this quality linen/cotton mix, you can find it here
in my shop.
