Here is a little pencil roll I whipped up on Sunday evening. I used this excellent tutorial from Kirsty over at Kootoyoo (which is actually for an embroidered carry all!) but the instructions lend themselves to a pencil roll just as well, the instructions are very easy to follow and the pencil roll came together in about half an hour. Thanks Kirsty!
Please take no notice of the fact that I only stitched enough pockets to hold eleven pencils. Clearly I need a tutorial which reminds me to count the number of pencils in my child's pack before marking and stitching all the rows.
