Every year, people pack the stores in mid-June to start shopping for school supplies that they don’t even need until the fall.
By the time the huge sales roll around in July, it seems as though everything has already been picked from and you’re left with the plain, boring things that your kids don’t want anyway.
Sound familiar? If this has happened to you more than once, you should definitely start thinking about trying something different.
This year, you can surprise your kids with cute pencil cases that are completely homemade. Inside this collection of 24 Free Pencil Case Sewing Patterns, find so many cute options to sew!
As a child, I could never find the school supplies I wanted. I was always so frustrated that I started making my own notebook and binder covers.
Fabric is always in great supply, so it’s time to start digging for those fun patterns that will make sure your kids have the coolest pencil cases in the whole class.
Pencil cases are perfect for making sure your kids don’t lose all of those school supplies you had to buy because they were mandated on a list. You can’t control how many writing utensils they lend out to other kids, but at least you’ll know they have a place to keep them safe and organized for a short time.
This will also make sure that if they break, the pieces will be all in one place rather than filtered inside of their backpack randomly. Basically, pencil cases are a very simple supply for school that can end up being more useful than you expect.
Use these back-to-school sewing patterns from AllFreeSewing and other bloggers to help your kid go back to school in style!
