Sew & Tell: back-to-school pencil bag

It’s that time of year. If you have kids, then it’s back-to-school time. The lazy days of summer are over and it’s time to get back to the hustle and bustle of school schedules and activities.


I've used this fabric before to make back-to-school themed projects. The fabric is a cotton muslin with blue-green lines that run horizontally.


A simple red stitch creates the writing paper margin.


I stitched up a few of these simple bags to use as pencil holder bags. Super easy - I opted for no zipper so a cute red binder clip keeps the bag closed. The bags can be used as a pencil supply bag or gift bags to hand out to friends at school.

A smaller size bag is perfect for post-it notes and stubby pens.

Yes, ready or not, it is back-to-school time. I hope you had a great summer filled with relaxing summer memories.
