I was going through my email the other day, I was looking through my Allfreecrochet.com newsletter and they had back to school patterns. They had a pattern for making a pencil case. So I clicked on it. Well it was a simple enough pattern and it uses up scrap yarn and recycles paper towel cylinders or tube if you prefer. LOL So this is a win win type of pattern. I decided to make one a couple of days later when the paper towels ran out. How lucky was that!?
Here are the links for the pencil case: StashBuster Pencil Case
Allfreecrochet.com has many wonderful free patterns besides the pencil case.
Which will lead you to Kara Gunza’s Petals to Picots
Or you can just go straight to Kara’s site. 🙂
So if you have kids heading back to school this is a quick and easy pattern to send them on their way with a cool pencil case. If you are a crocheter this will work great for hooks. Knitters could use it for their needles too. If you are a knitter I am sure you could alter the pattern easily enough. I am thinking of making a few more of these in Christmas colors, filling them with candy to give as gifts. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
