Sunday morning stitching

What do you do when, on Sunday morning at 9:30am, you realise the children have a party in two hours and the gift drawer has not been restocked? You have some books for a baby or some pencils… Hmmm…

Make a pencil pouch following the Noodlehead tutorial, fill it with a box of new pencils and by 10:15am, Bob’s your uncle (interesting fact: Bob really is my Uncle!)

I resized the pieces and didn’t make the scrappy panel but I always use this tutorial to remind me how to assemble pouches, it’s super easy to do.

    Bob’s my Father in law! We too have a gift drawer that doesn’t always contain what’s needed, but whipping this up is impressive!

    Haha! Bob really is your uncle! What a great little pencil case, I’d be way to stressed under that time pressure to produce anything! Nicely done :)

      Hi Wendy
      For some crazy reason time pressure is the only way anything gets done around here! I have to have a tight deadline or I muck around too much. I do wish I could pace myself better but when I try it, I don’t finish things. Any tips?

      Hi Amanda,
      Yes a present drawer is the best thing ever (except when it’s under stocked!). I buy gifts as I see them on sale and usually have a reasonable selection in the drawer. I think it allows the girls to go “shopping” and think about the gift that suits the person rather than selecting based on brand or price.
      The apple/pencil combo is cute, I can’t take credit though, the six year old has more style than her mother!!!
