A flowery pencil case!
 
New, hot off the sewing machine! Well, actually, it's a combination of hand stitching and machine stitching. Combined, I think it gives a really lovely effect. I love how well the fabric is behaving, although it was fraying quite a bit while I was cutting it. I did love the idea of leaving the flap edges raw, decorated with a zig-zag stitch.

I'm usually not the type for vintage-y fabric, but with this project it works really, really well. Also, I've used up all the fabric, and I love when that happens. There were a few pieces of this fabric leftover from a tote bag that I had made the other day, so I cut them up into small 2x2in squares, to practice my quilting techniques.
