Fun to sew


Mom has found a “pattern” for a little bag to have your pens and small stuff in. I don’t know what it’s called in English, penskrin in Swedish. She had made the small pink one before I arrived and then showed me how easy it was made. I sewed the big blue one with lots of funny flowers on.


The pink is very tiny and made by my mother. It was super fun and easy to make these.

I want to make more!

    That is so cute! There is not really a specific English word for that, other than tote (which just means a bag to carry things!) I love that fabric.

    I hope you are doing well, Hanna! :)

    First thank you so much for your wonderful so wonderful atcs. I got them today. My envelope to you is sitting on my desk, without stamps, but ready to take to the postoffice. I am lazy these days, it is finally warm and it has made me a little lazy…sorry about that. Happy about finding your nice blog too. I like the little pouches for pencils, in English it is called a ‘pencil case’. Thanks again for you atcs they are really delightful!!!

    Yes, it’s called a pencil case and I would make one for my daughter if I can only figure out how to use the zipper foot on the sewing machine. Here’s a link to instructions for another cute bag that looks a little like yours:

    Thanks for visiting my site. I love this little bag. I’d love to make these as gifts. I think homemade gifts are the best, they’re from the heart. Thanks for directing me to your great blog. I might just stay awhile. :-)

    Just for the “multicultural” sake, we do have a word for it in brazilian portuguese, it’s estojo. As a little pouch to keep your writing stuff organized for school.
