Certain school supplies seem to make the required school supply list year after year. One of those is a zippered pencil pouch that goes in a 3-ring binder. Discount stores have tons of them, but they’re usually pretty plain looking. Crystal from Stitched by Crystal shares a tutorial over at The Cottage Mama showing how to make one out of quilting cotton. With all of the prints available in quilting cottons, your handmade one is sure to be more fun and more colorful than the cheapy ones you can buy. And I suspect they’ll hold up better, too. Go to The Cottage Mama for Cystal’s tutorial.
