Student or not, we’ve all experienced the frustration of digging around a backpack/tote/purse, trying to find a writing utensil. A simple DIY solution: this lovely zippered hexie pencil case tutorial from Mama Says Sew!


For those of us who aren’t the pencil-toting type, this case would also make a wonderful pouch for carrying around English paper piecing, embroidery, or other small crafting projects. (See also: cosmetics or change.)

Make one this weekend! Check out the full how-to over on Mama Says Sew.
