Stylish Pen Case

98% done! I came up with this idea of a little pen case last week and had to try to see if it works, and YES! It did work so good that I am proudly going to write a tutorial on it (tomorrow!);) I just have to cover up the both ends of the zipper with fabric and photoshop a bunch of pictures of the process!

This is sort of a reproduction of my past 2 crafts combined.



Do you see it? I didn't mean to do this at all, but I guess I really like these colors and styles that the pen case naturally turned kinda similar. Interesting, I thought!

This is the pen case I made a long time ago. Probably this is one of the items I've made the most use of among all the things I've created, just because being a student I always need to carry something to write with me! But I am ready to move on to the new pen case now. New one is a little more modest and calm. I need the feeling!


Yay! I have two more fantastic fabric baskets to share with you guys!!

These are so nice, aren't they?!
Thanks for using my tute and sharing your beautiful crafts with us;)


  1. Wow, that's such a unique shape, too! ^__^ I thought the ends were triangles at first, but they're not! ^^; Looking forward to the tutorial, thanks in advance! C=

  2. Can't wait for the tutorial. I am a student also and am always digging around the bottom of my bag for something to write with.
    Maybe I will be able to do it?!!

  3. Hi Ayumi,
    I'm back to anonymous again. I can't seem to get My user name to work after the first time.
    I like your pencil bag. I think it would also be the perfect size and shape for a travel bag for personal items, cosmetics and things. It would fit well at the edge of a suitcase.
    I like looking at the other baskets people have been making, Thanks for including them here, but I like the one you made for me the best.
    Have a good week, Sweetie.
    Love, Kim

  4. Yay, I am so excited for this tutorial...I think I may have more success in trying this than the fabric basket (although the basket is lovely, smaller is better for me). Such beautiful fabric you chose, well done!

  5. Oh, I like that a LOT!!! Can't wait for the tutorial. I cut out a fabric basket tonight. Will let you know when I get it made and will post a picture over at my blog!

  6. Oh, I could totally just eat that up it's so yummy!!! I love the shape, and the strips of fabric paired with the solid gray.

  7. Aneesah-

    Hello! Yeah, I was gonna make the side parts triangle but then thought it might look more interesting if it becomes a triangle when it's closed. Also, I think it's easy to use and make too this way;)


    Hello! How's it going? I know we need a pen case for sure, don't we? I'm sure you can make this one too! Try!


    Thanks for your ALWAYS sweet comment, Kim! You are right! This can be a case for cosmetics and other stuff too because it's got soft, cozy batting in it! I love the pen case so much that I know I'll make more! I like looking at other crafters' baskets too! It's so much fun to see what they can come up with;) I'm glad to hear you like your the most! Yay!

    Shimmy Shake-

    Hello!Did you know the fabric basket is really small? I like working on small stuff too! Thanks for your nice comment on the pen case;)


    Oh I can't wait to see your fabric basket!! I have to check your blog often! Thanks;)


    Hello! I like the strip part too.I tend to pick up the fabrics that are just like these in color so I have a ton of them to choose from!
    I hope you'll like the new tute and make many pen cases;)




Thanks for taking the moment to leave a comment ;) I always love hearing from you!
