52 zippers #42: Orange sewing kit

Several years ago I came across a super cute pattern for this apple or orange-shaped sewing kit. I started the apple immediately but it wasn’t turning out as I wanted so I abandoned it. Fast-forward to this year and I decided to give it another try, though this time I thought I’d do the orange instead of the apple.

Before I left on my big trip, I had a request from my middle son and my husband to make very simple, plain pencil pouches. I know that getting the size for these “just right” can be tricky based on previous attempts at such things–there is a pretty narrow margin of good sizes for pencil pouches!
