I'm trying to make a cylindrical pencil case about 12" long with a zipper and lining. Something like this:

Does anyone have a pattern or know where I can find one?  If not, any tips you can provide?

Anything and everything is appreciated!

I jus realized everything i typed below is kind of irrelevant, and you probably already know what i tried to suggest.  Anyway, the only worthwhile part of my explanation is that i would try making the case out of part of an old, sturdy pair of jeans.

from the drawing you have it seems like a straightforward kind of project...i think you would just have to cut two circles of a heavy material (some sort of canvass or denim...hey, maybe you could make this out of part of an old pair of sturdy jeans?) the size you would like (i would use a compass to do that).  And then cut out a rectangle, making sure that two opposite sides of it are the same length as the circumference of the circles.  Then sew those sides around the edges of the circles, and add a zipper( which is the part that might be a little bit difficult. sorry, i have no experience with zippers)

I hope this helps, i understood what i was trying to say in my head but i think it may have some out a little bit confusing...

You're so right.  I think I just had a brain fart because it makes so much sense that I'm embarrassed that I even asked!

Thanks!  I'll try it today . . . and maybe I'll even post pics!
