Back to school is much more fun when you don’t actually attend school anymore!! Am I right?! I always loved buying new stationery, but not so much the school part. After yesterday’s post of a lovely Cath Kidston inspired DIY pencil case tutorial I thought I would share an extra 15 for you all to try/choose from.
16 Awesome DIY Pencil Case Tutorials To Make This Weekend!
Transparent Flat Pencil Case Tutorial
Pretty Japanese Style patchwork large pouch.
This type of cosmetics box pouch can make a great pencil case if you take art and carry your supplies around! I would recommend lining with oilcloth or a treated cotton. And if you study art or anything ALWAYS put a cap on your craft knives. Seriously, I can’t tell you how many pencil cases I’ve sliced right through! For some reason, (I wonder why ?) I cannot look at this photo with the little name in the bottom corner without Julie Andrews singing in my head!
A Spoonful Of Sugar is so amazing that the bloggers behind the wonderful website created a book:
I would love to create one of these with lots of lovely Lecien Fabric like this stuff.
How beautiful is the first case by Kristyne from Pretty By Hand? This isn’t a free tutorial but I thought it would serve as some fabulous inspiration for you! Rounded Pencil case tutorial PDF pattern.
The Easiest DIY Pencil Case Tutorial Ever
This is the most awesome pencil case ever! You could even cover it in washi tape. All you need is some sturdy soda bottles, strong zippers and hot glue! Oh, and something sharp. Be careful! Please don’t buy soda to make this tutorial. Just recycle.

A crochet pencil case tutorial!
It can be made a little sturdier depending on the type of yarn you use, you could even use bakers twine to make it super sturdy. It’s also possible to do a little recycling and stick a paper towel tube in there to make it super sturdy! There are some crackers cans (depending on what country you’re in) which are like slim, mini pringles cans which are the perfect size for a pencil case. Keep an eye out at the grocery store!
Plain and simple little pencil cases
You could create this super simple pencil case with only one fabric to make the project much faster. For a pretty pencil case, I would definitely use contrasting Lecien Fabrics (because I’m obsessed!)
