Foam Pencil Case

Difficulty: Easy

What You’ll Need

  • 1 large sheet of craft foam (12″ x 17.5″)
  • 1 child safe sewing needle
  • Yarn
  • Tape
  • 4 dots of self adhesive hook and loop
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Pattern

Fold the craft foam sheet so that you end up with two sections that are 6.5″ and one that is 4.5″ (x 12″).

Print out theĀ “PENCIL” pattern. Lay the foam out flat (not folded) and place the pattern onto the 4.5″ section. Poke the sewing needle through the paper and make an impression in the craft foam. Do this all the way around the letters.

Thread sewing needle with a 48″ piece of yarn. Pull completely through and tie both ends into a knot. Sew the yarn through the holes you created to create the word “PENCILS” on the craft foam.

When finished, thread the yarn through the back of the letters and tie off. Trim and secure with a piece of tape.

Thread a new piece of yarn onto the needle and sew both 6.5″ sides together to create the pencil case. Tie off and secure with tape.

Turn pencil case over to the backside and pipe a generous line of white craft glue along the stitched edges to secure. Let dry.
Place 4 self-adhesive hook and loop circles along the edge of the pencil case flap to keep the case closed.

Fill with pencils!
