I have a pencil tin, but in my messenger it rattles really loud and rather obnoxiously. All the time. So I had 30-ish minutes to kill before work and I made this up! The outside is a fat quarter of brocade I had lying around the the inside is this fun silky perfume print that I had bits of since I used it in my mom's X-mas present. I based it off of  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=63644.0 for the idea and shape, only I didn't shape the sides, even though it looks like it. I kinda botched on of the sides and it turned out like that.

So onto pictures~! (Forgive my cameraphone's picture quality, I didn't have the time to find my digital.)


The outside. I'm in love with this fabric.


Random zipper I had. Not as close in as I'd like, but I'm too lazy to buy a zipperfoot. lol.  Roll Eyes


The inside is SOFT! I'm kinda scared of my mechanical pencils stabbing it and ripping it.  Undecided

Patches are my happiness and my hippyness.

I love your fabric! It's lovely! Yeah, with pencil cases like that, even if the cloth is really sturdy it'll probably rip. There's not much you can do about it. What I love about those is every time you take out a pencil now, you'll see your pretty case and smile. Atleast, you should.

I LOVE personal swaps! If you see something I made that you like, and have anything fun or interesting or silly, tell me.

Yeah, but at least since I made it if it rips I can maybe patch it up or salvage the zipper and make a new one.  Cheesy
