A handy pencil is a must so I made a quick and easy (no-sew) pencil holster for my dairy last week.
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.
Boom. Pencil holster.
Added bonus: Getting to see Gingee-poo's adorable little face more often.
