Free Pattern – The Gobbler – A Pencil Eating Monster

The Gobbler - a free monster pencil case pattern from Shiny Happy World

I call this pencil-eating pouch The Gobbler.

It’s so much fun to choose fabrics and sew this project! If you can sew a straight line and sew on buttons – you can make The Gobbler.

You can make it even if you’ve never sewn a straight line – the pattern has links to videos teaching you everything you need to know.

    Thank you for the Gobbler pattern, Wendi, he is so cute. I am going to make one each for my grandsons, I’m sure they will be delighted!

    On the xmas stockings you show a red and white string. Are you twisting the 2 colors together? Wanted to check before I started.

    Thank you

    • It’s a stitch called Whipped Backstitch – super easy to do and I love the twisty effect. There’s a link in the pattern to a video showing how, and you’ll also find it in the outline stitch tutorials in the embroidery lessons.
