Sunbonnet Sue pencil case for my niece, Sophia, with Love.

I am making this pencil case for my niece, Sophia, in Athens, Greece these few days.  Ever since little Sophia saw my works, she kept asking my sister to request a little gift for her. 

Can't believe that time goes so fast, Sophia is finally going to secondary school soon.  This pencil case is just suitable for her age, cute and soft, just like her charater. 

Appliqued is pretty simple for this project.   With beautiful rainy day today, I am able to complete the applique very fast.  

An idea came into my mind when I saw this little fabric fell onto the choice of my back side fabric.  Hmm.... this would make this pouch looks more unique that way .... 

I am sure Sophia will exclaim a big 'WOW' when she receives this little gift from her aunty. ^V^

It's been quite a day, I guess I am going to call it a stop today.  Simple quilting, simple life .

Dear Story Quilt,
I wanna know... for every item you made, do you also use sewing machine or you stitch all by hand?
thanks :)

Hello, Lilik.

It depends, I use both technique. Machine stitch is more accurate but produce a bit dull presentation while hand stitch applique produce more personnel touch feeling to my works. So I normally think slowly before I decide which method to use.
