5923_pencil.jpgMany pencil and marker cases are great for the first few weeks of class, but soon show their wear from repeated openings and closings. 

Why not make a sturdy fabric case that will stand the test of time . . . and look super cute in the process? 

We found this adorable zippered pouch at Craft Passion. We love it, and think you'll find many other ways to use it besides as a holder for pencils, pens, and markers. Better make one (or two!) for yourself as well.
