You have everything? Let's make your pencil case come to life. Just follow these simple steps to do it yourself!

 

1 - Lay your jacket flat and take measures around the pocket

Be careful to centre your measures around the pcoket's zip.

Add 3 to 4cm on the sides of the zip (right, left and above) for the seams.

The height of your pencil case will depend on the space available between the pocket and the main zip of the jacket.

2 - Report the measures on a sheet of paper

in order to make a pattern, then cut the pattern.

3 - Position the pattern on the jacket,

on the pocket, then place the pins
so it won't move when cutting.

4 - Cut following the pattern,

but only the outside fabric of the jacket.
This will be the front side of your pencil case.

but once again only the outside fabric.

you now have the rear side of the case.
