Pencil pouch planning

Say that three times fast. Super fast. Pencil pouch planning, pencil pouch planning, pencil pouch planning!

The first week of school has been great, hectic but great.

I have been planning the new improved pencil pouch. I measured the original and sketched it out so we could take a little fabric shopping adventure in my stash. At this point I'm thinking a fat quarter would do nicely, but a vinyl or oilcloth lining for the pouch interior would make it so much more useful.

Here is my first sketch.

There is some logic behind it: I'm thinking for a smallish bag a 1/4" seam will reduce the bulk, and I can always double sew the seams for security, I am also thinking that the interior or pencil pouch lining should be slightly smaller than the exterior so that it fits together nicely.

Did I miss anything? Do you have any suggestions?
