pencil case "whale" – Tutorial with pattern
a whale as a practical pencil case:
Are you looking for a pencil case that not anyone else is having? One that can not only take on pens, but also swallows scissors or glue sticks without any problems?
Then the whale pencil case is perfect for you – and for small hands as well. Because the whale has such a distinctive fluke, it is easy for younger children to grab the pencil case by the fluke and open the zipper.
You are completely free in the design. Use durable and robust cotton fabrics, coated fabrics or give your old jeans a second life. The pencil case is great as an upcycling project. With the choice of the zipper you can set a great color accent. This will make your pencil case your new favorite piece.
The whale as gift:
You can use the whale also as key case, glasses case or toothbrush case.

von Lange Hand
Do you know this feeling when something special is created under your hands? Then it tingles in the tummy and a smile appears in your face. Especially when its one of a kind!
Because I love this feeling, I design sewing instructions in my little sewing studio. The ideas for my pieces come to me in my everyday life. Sometimes it is s a wild dragon, sometimes a practical changing bag and another time a buggy garland hops of my sewing machine. Only when working the refinements mature. If everything fits, I develop the tutorial. Step by step, I explain every detail, give additional tips and encourage variations. Numerous photos and a lovly design make each tutorial special.
