Collection: Cut & Sew Patterns
What does a little boy need when he starts school? A pencil case! Plus if he's anything like my kids - he needs a little treasure purse (or coin purse) to keep all those little things he takes for News/Show and Tell safe. Or what about a pouch to keep tissues in for those sniffles he is bound to catch!
This Cut & Sew Fat Quarter kit has fabric for a fully lined Pencil Case, and a fully lined Coin/Treasure Purse - both with zip end covers. On the larger fat quarters from 54 inch and wider fabrics - you also get fabric to make a custom sized Tissue Pouch/Holder. Custom - because I tell you how to calculate the correct dimensions for your pocket pack of tissues. When the tissues are all gone - Mr Robot gives you a wave from inside the holder!
You will need two zips, and coordinating thread to complete the case and purse. If you select a lighter weight fabric - I would also recommend fusible interfacing for the outer fabrics of both. Not necessary if you use the linen-cotton (which is what I have used, and recommend). For the Tissue Pouch - all you need is thread.
Full instructions, complete with photos, for completing the project are on my blog - shelleymade.com

Also available in a girl version here.

Functional and cute!
I really love these fun, friendly, colorful robots! My daughter was pretending to be a robot last night and it made me think of your design and how much children would adore this! Nice work Shelley! -Tara

Thank you Melanie! Your comment has made my day! :)
Shelley, these are fabulous, my 4 year old son would love these, you've done a great job!
Thank you Kathleen! I'm so glad people like the robots :)
A treasure pouch with robots on it- could there be anything more adorable?
Thanks for the lovely comments Robyn and Nekanen! I just realised no one can probably read the name fabric I used to line the coin purse...it says "Treasure"!
Its amazing! love it! all the boys would love it too!
And all in a single fat quarter!
Fantastic work Shelley! All looks so great, very clever to line it with your name fabric too.
Thanks so much Julie! I did have a lot of fun with these...
Shelley, you are so clever, these look fantastic!
Thanks Lori! My little boy has been having fun playing with them this afternoon...his bo-bots!
Shelley, this is great!!! Love the robots and the colours used make it even more fab! Good luck in the contest.
The coin - or treasure - purse!
