This little applique zipper pouch is for his Geography teacher, who also teaches our daughter History and they both love him! In fact Geography is one of the subjects George is hoping to continue for 'A' level in September.
A few years ago I made this pencil case for a friend, who had been promoted to Head of Geography, and the children suggested that Mr Mitchell would like a similar design.
I took the children's idea (but made it a bit less fussy as it's for a man!) and whipped up a personalised pencil case. I find it quite challenging stitching for men but hopefully he'll like it - And as a Geography teacher he will at least appreciate the fact that the fabric for both the main case and the lining came from upcycled work shirts which had seen better days!
Good luck to everyone sitting exams!
