Here in the UK we are coming up to the end of the school academic year – my daughter has grown massively so I thought it would be fun to create a DIY Fabric Gift for her teacher.

I raided my fabrics bought for knitting needle cases.. I love the combination of the red with the green lining.

The pattern was quick and easy, the only tricky bits lining up the pattern on the pocket and the base colour at the sides. But as you can see with mine it still looks good if you don’t quite manage it!!

As usual I am off to check out fellow Handmade Harbour creative:)
