Summer is winding down, and school has either begun - or will begin - for students far and wide. One of the best parts of a new school year? New school supplies!
Whether your child is in elementary school or you're the student and are working on an advanced degree, there's something so fun about stocking up on pens, pencils and all the other goodies that will help make the year a success.
Today we're sharing a great Back to School project with you - Pencil Bags! Remember those fabulous Simple Zipper Bags from Sherri McConnell? The one we made an awesome video tutorial about? Well it's time to tweak those bags a bit and create classroom-worthy Pencil Bags that will earn an A+! (This pug-tastic bag - above - was made with this fabric from the Joie de Vivre collection from Art Gallery Fabrics)
I made these super sweet Pencil Bags for my four children using fabrics I knew they'd love! These bags are simple to stitch up, and Fat Quarter Shop has all the supplies you need!
You're sure to ace this Back to School project - especially since our video tutorial shows you how-to, every step of the way. Here's a link to the original blog post about these awesome zipper bags, which includes fabric requirements and supplies needed at the bottom of the post. You'll find zippers here!
These darling zipper bags make great teacher gifts, too, so why not stitch up some extras while you're at it? You'll have a personalized gift ready for Christmas or Teacher Appreciation Day. Just tuck a Starbucks gift card or some candy inside, and the recipient will be delighted!
We hope you enjoy making these fun and functional Pencil Bags for the student in your life. Please share your Pencil Bags with us on social media using the hashtags #fqsfun and #simplezipperbag. Happy Quilting!
