a while back i showed you i’d made a little clip-in pen case that fitted my filofax ‘personal’ sized organizer. i love my organizer and its near perfect but with just one pen holder how was i to live?! i need a bunch of different colored pens on hand to er, color code my tasks. after i posted the pic of the original pen case i had lots of nice comments and tweets etc asking me if i’d share a pattern, and after road testing the original pencase for a few months i had a few modifications in mind.
as you can see i just had to scan some of the fabric and print out a little matching cover for my notepad:
the new design is way better than the original. it might be made from a pretty vintage bed sheet, but its made to last and fits the organizer perfectly. as well as that it now features a pocket on the back that can hold random loose papers or a little notepad!
its quite straightforward to make even if, like me, you’re not the best at sewing and you’ve never used eyelet pliers before. if you can cut, measure and sew straight lines then you can make this pen case. a big big shout out to the gorgeous cintia from my poppet for stepping in and lending me her pliers! she saved. the. day.
so if you’d like to make your own pencase like mine, here is the pattern. if you do make one don’t forget to link back here so we can all see your handiwork!
