I'm a hardcore sharpie addict. As a result of this addiction, I have quite the collection of these fabulous markers. I am also horribly disorganized. Which means I have lost many a sharpie to the abyss. I whipped this up in the hopes that no more of my beloved sharpies will disappear.

It's just some pink printed and solid black cotton flannelette. The stitching isn't perfect, but I've only been sewing a few months. (please ignore the half sewn-in handle. The thread broke I have been too lazy to fix it.)

It has 34 pockets. it will hold 30 regular fine point/double pointed markers and 4 ultra fine point markers. Evenutally I'm going to get some of that name labeling tape to label which the colour of the marker that belongs in each pocket.

There is is all folded up and ready to be carted around! Someone has already asked me to make one for their paintbrushes!

Yes, yes. The downside to the sharpie addiction is the inevitable: why can't I find "insertcolornamehere"?
Great job with the caddy.

such a great idea and it looks great. I should so make one of those for my sharpies (i love 'em too!!), markers, pencils, and paintbrushes. I could be so organized and not lose them all! Too bad I have lost all my motivation due to school... oh well. Maybe on my next break!

A very cool idea! Something like this would be perfect for when I take some of my Prisma markers to class. ♥ LOVE the fabric choices!
