Bag and Pencil Roll

This was a gift I made for a 7 year old girl...

The child's bag was made using a Simplicity pattern (5531) that I had purchased a few years ago. The matching pencil roll was adapted from One Red Robin's Notebook & Pencil Holder tutorial. To work out how wide to cut the fabric, I allowed 2cm per pencil and then added a 1cm seam allowance on each end. To figure out the height, I measured a pencil and again added 1cm seam allowances to each end. The pencil tips were a bit too close to the edge for my liking, so next time I make one I think I will and one more extra centimetre to the height.
