V's pencil case

Earlier this spring I was in need of something quiet and slow. I made V a pencil case, by hand, sans sewing machine. And it wasn't slow like I thought it would be. I made another one for myself, a mustard yellow one, by machine, and it was much trickier for some reason, and it's not nearly as nice as V's. I wish I had thought of the pattern before cutting the fabric; it would've been nice to have a full circles form around the zipper.
Apparently Blogger isn't giving me back my post re: books of good things, but just so you know, there's a new version in the shop, in two colours and extra goodies will come with all orders from now until further notice. 
I will be moving next week, as well as taking a very important exam, so things are a bit crazy here at the moment. If I've managed to not reply to your messages, rest assured that I've spent many hours replying them inside my head whilst waiting to fall asleep. Many grateful thoughts were sent your way even if no words.
