Hibiscus Pencil Case

I thought I would start the year off by making something really quick and easy to compliment my Christmas presents. I have been learning to surf so I got a small pack of surf accessories to go with my brand new board. So I decided to make a summer themed pencil case to fit all of my accessories. These pencil cases are perfect for so many occasions, especially for kids going back to school.

I found the pattern from the Craftsy Boxie Pouch but instead of doing the boxed edges I just sewed it straight to make a standard pencil case.

I ended up using my 100% cottom hibiscus fabric that I got from Hawaii, as well as my pink flamingo and cactus print from Spotlight.
