New Pencil Case in the Shop

Sometimes I get emails from people through Etsy asking if I can make a custom order for them.  Most of the time, I do my best to fulfill their request.  Recently, I had a customer order a snack and sandwich bag set in the spring bird fabric.  She loved them so much that she contacted me to ask if I could make her a pencil case with the same bird fabric.  I said sure, and then realized, I should have been making these all along to sell in my shop.  Sometimes I don't think as clearly as I should.  I blame it on having two small children!

After finding some pretty soft pink cotton fabric to line the pencil cases with, I had a new pencil case in the shop.

The great thing about these zippered pouches is that you can use them for anything.  The lady requesting the order was going to use them to store her double pointed knitting needles in.  So clever!  I use them for a variety of purposes - a case for my phone, a wallet on the go when camping, hiking or biking, or to carry our toothbrushes in when heading to the bathrooms at the campground.  Really, the uses are unlimited!

Thanks to Betsy from Massachusetts for requesting a custom order!
