Pencil Case - Tattered Angels & Prima Mist-ables

The Tattered Angels team were given these Prima 12×12 Mist-able canvas sheets to work with this month. When I see fabric, including canvas, it’s hard for me to leave it flat, so in this case I cut it up and sewed myself a little pencil case.

I misted the canvas with Patina, Cranberry Zing, Suede and Bronze glimmer mists, while it was still flat (just easier that way) and the zipper as well, so it would match. When it was dry I sewed it up.

The Prima lace was misted with Patina. This canvas butterfly is one of the Prima Resist Mist-ables, and was treated to Cranberry Zing, and some Prima jewels.

The flower cluster features some Prima fabric flowers and canvas Mist-ables. I used Cranberry Zing on the large canvas flower, Patina on one of the fabric flowers and the smaller canvas flower, and the last flower was misted with Bronze and edged with Cranberry Zing. The Prima jewels and pearls were given a little extra stick with fabri-tac, since this case will see a lot of use.

I lightly brushed all the edges with Chandelier glimmer glam to prevent fraying. It worked a treat, and added a little extra shimmer.

What would you make if you had one of these sheets? :)

Oh so gorgeous!!! That pencil bag rocks!!! I'd probably make a banner for my daughters room since she loves them so much, if I had one of the canvas sheets. I can't sew like you, or I would love to be able to do something like you did!!

How creative JJ. I would never think of making a pencil case from this sheet. Looks fabulous too. Love what you have done. Cheers Di xx
