Denim pencil cases

DD2 needed combo birthday/Christmas presents for a few of her friends, so I experimented. The last time I made these pencil cases, I made them with quilted fabric. This time I didn't want to purchase anymore fabric so I tried some denim I had purchased a while ago. I didn't want it to be plain, so I appliqued a heart on the outside and lined the inside with the matching fabric. As you can see each one is a different color. It took some time to figure out how to do it, but it was worth it because I thought it turned out really cute. I hope her friends like it.

I made pencil holders with clear acrylic and others with plastic tableclots...the clear pastic ones were a hit because when the students have exams or tests they aren't allowed plain ones ...just to be clear on the cheating part ...http://innamorata.canalblog.com/archives/2007/10/03/6419932.html
