Looking round the blogosphere for an easy way to carry colored pencils for the Little Scientist I found several no sew pencil roll prototypes. This was the simplest form I came across. It was so common there is no attribution, so share away! It was fun to make. We think we might try making a few more adding little flares here or there.
Materials: ruler, sharp scissors or a sharp punch, one piece of yarn or ribbon for the tie, a piece of wool felt (the size should allow for 1 inch spacing between pencils, the number of pencils you want will determine your felt size), a fabric pencil or marker for marking your holes.
