Isn’t this cool?  It’s a pencil bag, which I made myself, using this pattern.  You should make one, too.  Be warned, though, that the instructions are a bit sketchy, especially if, like me, you can’t think in three dimensions.  The designer is so good at this that she probably can’t imagine the struggles that flat-brains like me go through.  

In particular, be careful when you’re sewing it together, or you will end up, as I did, with a perfectly flat bag shaped a little bit like Noah’s Ark.  I did some strategic ripping and re-arranging, once I realized how badly things had gone awry, and it ended up fine. 

Here’s a shot of the lining: 

It’s living in my pocketbook now, filled with automatic pencils, Pilot Micropoint pens, some origami paper, and a pack of gum.  Hurrah!
