It all started yesterday when I found the most adorable pencils at Target. Just look at those colors!
And they got me thinking: pencils like this need a proper pouch. Like something that I can throw in my rehearsal bag and not be embarrassed to take out in public. So I got to work! I made a simple little bucket-style pouch, with a zipper on the top. I made it tall enough that I could put in my pencils and still have room left for my other essentials (like rosin and candy.)
For the main exterior of the pouch, I used some fabric I had left from this project, and a beige 7-inch zipper. To make the bottom a little more sturdy (and a little more resistant to dirt) I used some floral brown cotton I had left from this project, and I stuck some crocheted trim on top. For the lining, I used some white dotted fabric, left from this project. Nothing like using up bits and pieces from the scrap pile!
This was such a quick and easy project...perfect for a rainy day off! On top of this little beauty, I also got some great practicing in, and got the oil changed in my car. What a day! And I've got some more projects on my to-do list for this week, so I'll (hopefully) be back soon! Thanks for stopping by!
