|A pretty and practical solution for corralling pens and pencils!|
|A modified tiny version of my Terrific Tulip Block!|
My solution? To design a pencil case that I could secure to the front cover of my notebook. Upon measuring the notebook, I found that with some custom placement, I could use a scaled down version of my terrific tulip quilt block for the front of the pencil case!
|This is the sewing space I have been using, tucked under the windows (with beautiful views), at one end of the living room, during our summer rental on Silver Star mountain.|
|Two loops of elastic (sewn into the top and bottom seams), create the straps that secure the pencil case to the notebook.|

This simple design has become my favourite pencil case! I now have plans to sew a couple more for myself (because of course I have more notebooks!).
