There are lots of ways to get ready for the new semester of school, restocking on new school supplies is one of them, making a fabulous DIY Pencil Pouch is another!
What’s better for a new semester of homeschool, than some new markers, and a fab DIY Pencil Pouch?! Absolutely nothing! (I love school supplies!!!!)
This colorful DIY is beyond simple to make, and is such a fun addition to hold all your pencils, pens, & markers.
The beauty behind this DIY is you can really utilize your DIY design skills in any way! Want to go bohemian, bring on the the hippy chick & flowers. Want to go nautical, bring on the gold (there’s a sharpie for that!!) & bold navy stripes.
I’m a little obsessed with geometric design (surprise surprise), so I went geometric, with some hexagons.
I scooped up these “electro POP” Fine and Ultra Fine Point Sharpies at Staples because of the awesome colors in the pack – I mean c’mon, with names like Ultra Violet, Electric Pink, Nano Blue, Techno Blue, and Optic Orange – some serious color fun is about to happen (90’s techno anyone?)! Here’s the tutorial…
DIY Pencil Pouch
- “electro POP” Fine and Ultra Fine Point Sharpies at Staples (plus for the entire week of January 24th save 35% off all regular priced Sharpie product at Staples, while supplies last).
- canvas pencil bag
- a scrap of plastic (a notebook sleeve cover or transparency sheet will work great)
Using the ultra fine point markers, sketch out the template of your design on paper before you start to color on the canvas (there’s no erasing my friends, plus I’m a little type A). Or throw caution to the wind & just start coloring ;) Open the zipper of the canvas pouch and place the plastic inside (so the marker design won’t seep through to the back layer). Next, trace the outer edges with the ultra fine & then color in with the fine point Sharpies. voilà you’re done!
