My boy turned 10 years old yesterday and he has fun sketching and doodling and LOVES pencils and erasers – no idea where this comes from ;). I made him a zipper pencil pouch using inkjet printable canvas on which I had printed one of his drawings. The inside is lined with vinyl and has a camo zipper across the top. These materials where a little difficult to sew together, but I am super pleased with the results, and more importantly, so is the boy.
There are many tutorials for making these lined bags, but I went with this one by Melly Sews: found here.
Materials and supplies I used:
- Inkjet printable canvas by Avery (purchased on Amazon)
- Vinyl (from fabric store)
- Scanned drawing
- 24″ zipper, which I shortened
- Coordinating thread (orange to shorten zipper, green for top stiching on zipper, white, not shown for all other sewing)
- Tape Measure
I cut my fabric to 11″ x 6″
There are more zipper pouches in my future.
