The first one I made is a black and white one lined with a Makower fabric with sewing machines
For the third one, which is now mine, I have used sand Essex linen and selvage strips that I have been saving for a while.
I also made one using a piece I had left from some curtain fabric (linen and cotton). I left it plain (without the strips) and used a lovely roses ribbon.
The pencil case wold make a perfect present for a teacher so I think that's what I'll be making this year...
