A bribe March 12, 2008

Filed under: children,craft,sewing — craftymim @ 8:51 pm

My DD’s attend danish school once or twice a month. They really don’t like to go – they tell me each time, but appear to have fun whenever we get there. I am on the committee, so we ‘have’ to go, and I really enjoy catching up with my danish friends.
This year I decided to bribe the girls, they got a new pink folder each, new textas, a gold texta (which are priced possessions when you are 7 and 8, even more so than the pinks) and I made a new rolled-up pencil case for them. It worked 😉
I only had enough red-and-white-danish-coloured fabric for one, so they are sharing.
The next one need the slots for the pencils to be a little wider, and the ribbon needs to be wider too, to make it easier for little hands to tie. I will make one for myself too, for the knitting needles and the crochet hooks.
I used this tutorial.

    I rather fancy one of those for my own pens. I have tried all sorts of pencil cases for crops; big ones, little ones, zip up ones, rigid boxes but can never find the pen I need when I need it. This looks just the ticket and something even I ought to be able to sew without too much trouble!

    Let me know when you have tried it out. It really is easy.
    Looking forward to see your choice of fabrics.
