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!

To Design patterns for other sewing enthusiasts. To Teach sewing and crafting skills to anyone (ages 3 to 103!) who is eager to find their creative groove. To Share book reviews, ideas, inspiration and tutorials on this blog. Who we are... Nupur loves to knit and crochet and is newly in love with sewing and quilting. She has been writing a food blog called One Hot Stove since 2005. Her role in this project is to provide blogging support and moral support in large doses. Nupur lives in North Eastern Georgia in the Southern US, amid sweet-smelling magnolia trees. Kashmira loves being surrounded by fabric and its kin to come up with interesting designs. In 2011 she started a small fabric accessories business venture called Kala Koyree. Her role entails using all that moral support to bring forth new patterns and ideas.
