You need a place to keep those pesky, roly poly, disappear-y pencils.
You could make one like this...
|pick some pencils and cut two pieces of fabric that will be long enough for your pencils.|
|hem long edges of each piece, fold top 1cm (1/3 inch) and sew as shown - repeat on other piece|
|(scuse the red nails - was having a la dee da day!) pin long edges right side facing leaving the folded section unpinned.|
|sew all three sides (double stitch for strength)|
|that top bit is still open...!|
|turn right side out, thread ribbon through one side of opening and back to the other side|
|pin ribbon to itself|
|repeat with second piece of ribbon going the opposite way - it will tie on the other side|
