Sheets of funky foam in assorted colours

Chunky wool yarn

Self-adhesive Velcro strips

A sewing needle


Two clothes pegs


1. Fold the foam sheet over by 10cm, to create the case section.

2. Hold the fold in place with a clothes peg at each end.
3. Using a darning needle, threaded with wool yarn, neatly sew the two layers together with an over-stitch or blanket stitch.
4. Cut out pretty flower shapes in contrasting foam and place them on the front flap of the pencil case.

5. Once you have a pleasing arrangement, stitch the flowers to the flap.
6. To make a closure for the pencil case, cut a length of self-adhesive Velcro and attach it to the inner layers.
