A No-Sew Pen Holster for my Life, er Diary

This little book carries a lot of weight for me.  It helps me get where I need to go, remember what I need to remember, and is the place where I jot my dreams, plans, poems, sketches, and more.

A handy pencil is a must so I made a quick and easy (no-sew) pencil holster for my dairy last week.
I printed a photo of Ginger on plain paper and mounted it on a square of manila folder for added thickness and durability.

I used a 1 1/2 inch strip of scrap fabric (used in Matt's wallet and our bocce bag) for the actual holster.  I folded the strip in half and then in half again to enclose all the raw edges, as in this video.
Using spray adhesive I glued the photo inside the back cover of my diary with the fabric loop sandwiched in between.

Boom.  Pencil holster.
Now I won't be digging for one every time I want to write something down.

Added bonus:  Getting to see Gingee-poo's adorable little face more often.

  1. ...what a neat idea...mine is spiral bound and I usually just tuck the pen in there...but this is so cute!
