Bench from jeans own hands
From one denim fabric the pencil case will come out rough and not protected from blows. Let’s sew it into three layers. The front side is denim, the padding is in the middle of the vatine and the inner side is a bright linen or cotton cloth. This is the pattern we need to make and do not forget the allowance for seams 1-1.5 centimeters.
You need to cut each piece into two pieces, but never forget about the allowance for seams. This is an important point that must always be taken into account. And be sure to use the sewing machine, since the seams will not come out so smooth with the hands.
Now we need to sew a jeans and a wadding layer among themselves. We use this type of firmware, this is the simplest and most popular quilting scheme. In this way all the unevennesses and fabrics are concealed in one layer. Pencil in wax draw lines and work on them.
After the drawing, we fasten the batting and jeans with the pins. Then we sew the two fabrics together.
This is how the front and the inside look.
Try on a snake and attach accessories for beauty. Denim shade can be different, consider this when preparing pieces of tissue for the pencil case.
We are using lightning. We put it on the front side of the jeans, so that when to bend the zipper to hide the seam.
From the top with a zipper you need to sew the inner fabric.
On different sides of the lightning, the sum should be four separate pieces.
Unfasten the zipper and we spread the fabric around the perimeter. Crop the extra scraps.
Denim pencil case is ready. Now you can use it.
