Back to School – Upcycled Pencil Case


green grass hand made recycled oilcloth pencil case

Dropped the wee man off at school today – first day back!  The big kids start back tomorrow.  Here’s the upcycled pencil case I made him from our old kitchen tablecloth.  It’s not actually real “oilcloth” but fake PVC type stuff – it wasn’t a great tablecloth – not very strong – so it’s been replaced.  The grass design is really great though.  I keep it for covering the table when I/we do “art.”  Anyway, I cut a corner off the table cloth and whipped up this baby – we’ll see how it holds up as a pencil case.  The zip is salvaged too of course.

I am going to make another pencil case as daughter#2 want’s one too,  so I’ll try and take pics and post instructions so you can make one too.  Watch this space…..
