How to make a pencil case

Start with a back and front, a back and front lining and a zip. I added a layer of batting to the outside fabric and quilted it in straight lines.

Sandwich one side of the zip between the front fabric and the front lining fabric as below:

Zip sandwiched in-between. Stitch and repeat with the back pieces.

Top stitch as below to enable the fabric to sit flat against the zip.

Zip inserted and top stitched. You will need to move the zip up and down the teeth as you sew to get close enough to the zip.

Put right sides of the outside fabric and right sides of the lining together. Pin and stitch, leaving a 10cm gap in the lining to turn through. Trim all corners.

Turn inside out and stitch the bottom of the lining closed, by hand or machine.

Voila! Finished pencil case!
