Super Easy Multicolor Pencil Case or Makeup Bag

Pencil Case for my daughter

In my case, I created a pencil case for my daughter who was able to choose the color. Oh what joy! She selected a multicolor yarn which she loved. Her classmates and teacher thought it was super fab.

Supplies

Final size:
• Yarn: Multicolor: DK, light worsted weight yarn, 100% acrylic (specifically: Laine du NORD, color: Bleu Clair, 50 gr/150 m)
• Yarn: Purple: DK, light worsted weight yarn, 100% acrylic (specifically: Patons Astra, color: Hot Lilac, 50 gr/1.75 oz)
• Hook: 3 mm (B1)
• Zipper (I used a pair from an old pair of pants)
• Yarn Needle
• Sewing needle
• White thread

Notes:
• The width of your bag should be larger than the largest item. For example, when making a pencil case, make it wider than an unsharpened pencil with an eraser or a long ruler. It’s absolutely up to you.
• Best case scenario: Use a zipper the size that matches the width of your final bag.
• However, if like me you’re using a zipper from an old pair of pants, it was too short.  To compensate, I sewed the sides closed. But remember, don’t make the opening too small or you won’t be able to fit the taller pencils or rulers.
