MY FIRST PROJECT YAY!! I decided to make a pencil case since my existing one is too small and ripped. I decided to personalized it with an African print textile I recently brought and a pocket for my memory stick because i’m always losing it. I used the idea of the DIY Reversible Tote Bag project to make the pencil case. I thought it turned out alright but the shape looks a bit weird, think I could make it better by using interfacing to make the case stronger and stiffer.
