1 - old pair of jeans
2 - different scraps, one from cargo pants, and another from darker pair of jeans
1 - 12 inch zipper (I used a old tent zipper)
Step 1: Cutting the Fabric
Measure the length of your zipper.
Cut across the leg of the jeans about 1 inch wider than the zipper.
Step 2: Sizing the Pencil Case
You will have to cut off more on one end that the other depending on the style of the jeans.
Step 3: Adding Details
Then use it as your pattern to cut out the shape using the scraps of fabric. (darker jeans)
Pin it on the front of the front panel of the pencil case.
Zigzag sew around the edge.
Step 4: Making a Patch
Put it on an angle onto the fron panel. Sew around the edge using a straight stitch. Do it twice.
Cut a circle in the same fabric. Use the back side and zigzag sew around the egde. Then straight stitch sew around the inside and outside of the zigzag.
Cut out 3 long skinny retangles in the darker jean fabric. Use the back side.
Make into a Z shape. Zigzag sew around the Z.
Step 5: Adding the Zipper
Then pin the zipper.
Straight stitch sew 2 rows along the teeth edge. (see final pic to view 2 rows)
