Ear buds are a school supply requirement (they were them for computer labs so they aren’t so disruptive). Those things not only get lost so easily not to mention nasty looking if they’re left out (or jammed in a pencil case)… so I always opt to make a case for them.
This year’s case was inspired by See Kate Sew’s Coin Pouch. I really loved the shape of her little bags, but since I was a bit pressed for time, I just winged it. I think the size is perfect, but my only regret is not boxing out the sides like she did – I think it might have been easier to stuff the wire into the bag (or at least give the appearance there’s more room), but we’ll see how it works out in the end (f I get complaints, you’ll be seeing a second version very soon).
