How to crochet a Pencil Case
Do you need a new pencil case
for school or work? Why not make your own unique pencil case with just a few basic crochet
stitches? It's easy and fun to make, and you can customize it with your favorite colors and decorations. Here's how to crochet a simple pencil case
- Worsted weight yarn in your choice of color(s)
- Crochet hook size H/8 (5.0 mm)
- Tapestry needle
Step 1: Start with a chain
Begin by making a chain of 25 stitches with your crochet hook and yarn. This will form the base of your pencil case.
Step 2: Single crochet row
Next, make a single crochet stitch in the second chain from the hook. Continue to make single crochet stitches in each chain across the row. At the end of the row, chain 1 and turn your work.
Step 3: Repeat rows
Repeat Step 2 until your work measures approximately 8 inches long or until it is the desired length for your pencil case.
Step 4: Fold and sew sides
Fold your work in half with the right sides facing each other. Use your tapestry needle and yarn to sew the sides of your pencil case together, leaving the top open.
Step 5: Add a button
If desired, you can add a button to your pencil case to keep it securely closed. Sew a button onto the front of your pencil case, then make a loop with yarn on the back to fit around the button.
And there you have it! You have just made your own pencil case with basic crochet stitches. Experiment with different yarn colors and button styles to make it your own. It's a simple and fun project that is perfect for beginners or experienced crocheters alike.
