Back to school: Pencil pouches

My girls went back to school this week. Along with gathering basic school supplies, my oldest needed a replacement for her vinyl pencil pouch (the zipper went kaput).

I was planning on making mini button holes or eyelets, but the original holes still looked good. So it was sliced off and sewn onto the vertical edge of the pouch. It's not washable now, but it saved some work and the fit is perfect!

Here is a piggy one with botton holes (it is lined and has french seams so it is machine washable). Hopefully these will be more durable :)
