For the past few months, I have been working a project that has me working away from my desk as much as I have been at it. I originally had pens, pencils, etc at the bottom of my laptop bag which meant that I could never find anything when I needed it, and a couple of weeks ago, I upgraded to a plastic bag.
Needless to say, I need something better. I decided to make a simple pencil case. I made it a little big so I had plenty of room for everything. I made it out of a single tube of fabric, similarly to how this bag was started, but if I were to do it again, I probably use two pieces of fabric because the narrowness of the tube made it a complete pain to sew.
After making the tube, I sewed the edges shut. It maybe took me 30 minutes from start to finish. Hopefully this will keep me organized no matter where I am.
