Chic Pencil Bag

In my home,
my children always seem to want
something a little different from the
student sitting next to them.
Especially as they grow older.

So, I created this easy pencil bag for
one of them that enjoys to write.

A quote can always inspire you to

try a little harder or
dream a little bigger.
I just love the vintage fun look that was created.
You can find the tutorial for
this at Thermoweb.
