Here’s a nice collection of pencil case patterns and tutorials, some are loaded with features while others are pretty basic in their design so there should be something for everyone in this bunch. These are not only great for carrying school supplies, but they’re handy to hold craft and needlework supplies too. Some of the designs are fairly similar but each has their own unique twist to offer (most are sewn but you will find a couple knitting patterns in the bunch), enjoy!
Tube: Made with home decor weight material, duck cloth or canvas, the round ends are finished in a contrasting piping.
For Binders: This one fits inside a 3-ring binder (grommets are used), has rounded corners and it’s all finished off with contrasting bias tape.
Made With Felt: Sweet and simple made with a rectangle of felt and hand sewn together with embroidery thread. Button closure (simple buttonhole made with a snip in the felt).
Recycled Cereal Box: Here’s a quick and easy project using cardboard from a cereal box, there’s a free template download available (via pdf).
With Inner Pockets: This design features small inner pockets that were designed to hold matchbox cards but they can be used to hold other supplies if you like.
Flat: The is lined and features a contrasting fabric along the top (zipper is near the top so the pocket is nice and deep).
Sharpie: Here’s a cute little lined, zipped pouch that has a sharpie design on the front and doodles on the back.
For A Binder: Made for a 3-ring binder, has a clear vinyl “window” so you can see what’s inside.
Zip-It-Up: Here’s a neat project using an 80″ nylon zipper and 80″ of ribbon (a strip of lining is optional).
Knitted: Sweet little project that features buttons and flowers (lazy daisy embroidery technique) for embellishment.
