Did you catch yesterday's Sew Lux Pouch Club series post? This month, Chrissy shared tips for making her Pencil Me In Pouch, which we think is the perfect project to round out your summer sewing now that it’s back-to-school season. So, several of us on the Moda team decided to have a little Pencil Me In Pouch sew-along over the weekend!

Today, we're sharing our fabric pulls!

I can’t wait to see how Alison incorporates that fun retro floral print from Cathe Holden in her pouch! The addition of metallic Speckled prints is the perfect touch.

Tammy’s fabric pull is from just one collection – can you believe it? I think this is going to be softer, sweeter twist on the classic pencil design. I think Tammy has a little surprise element planned for her pouch as well, so stay tuned for that!

I love the neon 80s vibe from Jessie’s fabric pull! This is going to make such a fun pouch. Jessie usually adds something a little extra to her makes too…I wonder what she’s got planned with two zippers?

Lissa’s fabric pull is an ode to the nostalgia of childhood school days – classic and sweet! And how perfect is that pink crossweave for an eraser? Now I want to crack open a box of fresh number 2 pencils!
