Friday Finish

This is a just a little finish and I nearly forgot about it. When this one started kindergarten last fall, he was very particular about keeping his pencils and markers together, and separated from all the other pencils and markers in the house. So he kept them in a ziplok baggie.

 One of my all-time favorite pictures--he looks so much like his daddy at this age
*sigh* What good is it having a grandma who sews, if she doesn't actually sew something for your pencils and markers??

I finally took care of the situation and made him this little zippered pouch with a see-through window. And added some new pencils and erasers. I used a pattern from here ( search for Peek-A-Boo Bag). It took awhile to figure out some of the steps, but it turned out really well.He's happy with it. And that's all that counts.
The finished size is 9" x 10"
I'm linking up with Finish It Friday and TGIFF.

Did you know that your little sweetie has the same pose as Grandma's blog photo? Intentional or coincidence?
