Cut 1 square 8.25” by 8.25”. • Cut another square 8” by 8.25” (this square is the lining and the width needs to be slightly smaller). • Mark your 8” sides with a small pen mark.
Place the smaller piece right side up. Set the zipper, facing up, on top of this piece on the 8.25” side. • Place the other square on top of this facing down. Line them up and sew alongside the zipper.
Unzip the zipper and roll the right side out and put the lining on the inside.
Put the outside fabric back on the inside. • Center the zipper and pin. • Trim with pinking shears. • Sew and backstitch over the zipper a couple of times to reinforce.
Trim all threads and turn right side out. • Your new Pencil Case is ready for use!
