A quick pencil bag for school


Every year I make a new pencil bag for Katy for school. She is not an over the top girly type so It is usually something in either green or blue. This year is her first year of middle school so it needed to be cool and not elementary too. I think I checked all the right boxes with this one.



I used Monaluna Circa50 that I think is fun and funky, denim, pul on the inside and I tried a plastic film that I had never sewn with before on the front to protect the outer fabric. 


The PUL inside will keep any pen breaks in the bag!

 This is the thin plastic I used to protect the front. I found it at Joann's and it is really cool. Not terrible to work with ( the pul is harder...very slippy!) and it seems to be just what is needed. There was no name on the paper but here is a photo of what it looks like.



Whew, I finished just in the nick of time ( read 10pm the night before the first day of school).
