Here is a simple sewing project, that a first-time-sewer can accomplish with a little help from a parent. Laura from  Dacian Moon Handmade  will show you, step by step, how to make this cute bear pencil bag / case…a great way to organize your school pencils and pens.

How to make and Sew a Bear Pencil Case for Back to School



CRAFTS MATERIALS NEEDED:

- light blue cotton cloth
- dark blue cotton cloth
- canvas – to double the bag
- pen
- scissors
- one black button, two beads
- needle and thread
- zipper







Step 1.

Take the light blue cloth and fold it in half…







… then draw an oval on it. Like this.







Cut it out.








… like this.







Now the two sides are united by the lower part.







Step 2.

Draw the muzzle and two ovals for the ears on dark blue cloth…







… then cut the out.







Step 3.

Open the light blue oval and place it on top of the canvas…







… and cut the form on it. I did the same for the ears but then I didn’t use the canvas on ears so you don’t need to.







Place the canvas on the light blue cloth…







… and fold in half to have the head of the bear.







Step 4.

Sew the two parts together, using a blanket stitch along the sides. (To make a blanket stitch, push the needle through the fabric then pull the needle through the loop.)







Like this.







Sew 2/3 of it then prepare one ear. Take an ear oval and fold it in half…







… then continue to sew over it…







… like this.







Step 5.

Place the muzzle on the lower part of the head…







… and sew it here.







Like this.







In the upper part of the muzzle sew the black button…







… as a nose.







Step 6.

Mark the places for the eyes…







And sew the beads there…







… like this.







Step 7.

Start on the lower part and sew the other part of the head and the other ear.







Step 8.

We will add a zipper from one ear to the other…







…sewing it on place.







Like this.







That’s all. Now you have a blue bear pencil bag !:)
