oppette said: My pencil case is starting to fall apart so I want to make a new one. I usually buy then from Asian stationary stores (because they're cute) but recently all the ones near me are closing down :/ Can you link me to something that's cute and easy to follow? Thanks :D

The first thing that comes to mind is something I posted recently:¬†DIY DVD Color Pencil and Paper Carrying Case here, and then she made improvements and suggestions about making her original design better¬†here.It’s easy and really really inexpensive. There are also pencil roll tutorials out there where you stitch up fabric so there are slots for each pencil, but I don’t think I’d have the patience to put every pencil in one by one.

EDIT: For those who do want to sew a pencil case there is a new tutorial today, May 7th, 2012 on Buttons & Butterflies here.

DIY UPDATED DVD Color Pencil and Paper Carrying Case. I originally posted Stacy Vaughn’s DVD Coloring Kit here, but she’s come up with some updates and tips and tricks for making it even better. Tutorial at Handmade by Stacy Vaughn here.
