This is sad but true - there are a million things to buy/ make for little girls out there, but not so many at all for the little guys. When the time came to make something for my friend's son for his birthday, I scratched my head and scoured the internet (not simultaneously) for some appropriate project, but nothing really caught my eye. I decided to address this glaring lack of sewable-especially-for-boys projects by creating my own pattern. A car shaped pencil case will get a seal of approval from most boys (or girls for that matter!). We encourage you to give this pattern a try - learn how to sew a zipper on a curve and at the end of it make a little kid very happy!
