Scrappy Project #1 - Pencil Holders

I decided 2016 is going to be the year I sew with my scraps.  The bins where I keep my scraps are overflowing and taking up a lot of space in my sewing room.  In fact, my fabric stash in general is taking up way too much space in my sewing room.  So this year, I'll be sewing with scraps and with my own stash.  

To get myself started, I decided to make pencil holders for my sewing room.

I used this tutorial as a starting point.

I made a green one using green scraps for my crayons.

A blue one using blue scraps for my washable markers.

And a pink one using pink scraps for my cutting tools.

I have to say, these are little bit addictive - and when my sweetie came in to my sewing room earlier this week, he asked me to make him one for his computer desk upstairs.  Now that's a compliment!

Even though I completed these in 2015, I'm going to count these as scrappy project #1 and I'm going to be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday.

Here's to a wonderfully creative and quilty 2016!!!



  1. These are great containers. So much nicer than a plain container.

  2. Super cute! I could use come of these!

  3. So cute and practical! I know what you mean about the scraps. They are taking over my space!

  4. Love these! I've pinned this post so I can make some for my girls. Happy New Year :)
