Crayon Pencil Case Crochet Pattern

crayon pencil case crochet pattern

I was thinking about what would make a good back-to-school themed pattern when this idea just popped into my head.  I quickly checked Pinterest to make sure no one had done a crayon shaped and colored pencil case.  Not finding anything,  I then set out to start crocheting it.  As I went along (it was just crocheting itself, basically), I wrote down very basic notes, such as “Row 3–sc –>”, and so on.  Poor Helen…. She had to decipher my notes rather than using an actual pattern!

I really loved how the use of different shades of the same color made this work out so well, with the perfect placement of black lines to make it look just like a crayon!

About the Pattern:

I knew that anything crocheted might have some holes in it so I designed this to be lined and have a zipper installed as well.  You can use craft felt or any fabric you have on hand.  I also recommend hand sewing rather than trying to push all that through your sewing machine however, I have put my little Brother sewing machine through the test and I did break one needle but the machine still works!

I personally loved how it came out and would use this for more than a pencil case.  Hook case, make up bag, just about anything!
