I've been seeing these everywhere, but they were quite pricey so I decided to make my own.
Cut two rectangles of fabric, one for the front and one for the back.
Cut another rectangle that is as wide but shorter than the first two.
Pin the smaller rectangle to the bottom of the inside fabric and a strip of ribbon along the middle.
Place a pencil at the edge and pin the fabric and the ribbon around it.
Repeat this for as many pencils as you like.
Sew the lines in, removing the pins as you go.
Sew ribbons to the cover fabric for decoration.
Put the cover fabric on top of the inside fabric so that the wrong sides are facing out and pin around the sides and bottom edge.
Sew around the 3 sides.
Fold inside out and then fold in the top two edges and sew along the top.
Sew velcro dots to the edge and where the edge hits on the main body of the fabric when it is rolled up.
what is the width and lenght of both squares
Thanks,it´s cool and very simple. =) Perfect present for my friend =)
super cute and practical idea! thanks for sharing;)
Wow... I'm going to try and make it soon! Do you think it'll be nice if we add pockets on the outside and fold it up instead of rolling it?
The original project is nice. Thumbs up. It's just my ideas...
this is awesome! i just made mine ( out of felt) and it holds the pencils real well , though aas i am not very quick and coodinated i sorta took like 2 hours
how big should the rectangel be? i love the pencil case its sooo adorabel
I love this! I think I'll make it for back to school, even though I just go to regular school- not art school.

Great project, bet you can use it for crayons also...
That is so smart! Great idea!
