Its back to school time, and of course that means lots of school supplies, lunches, and a much-needed crochet break.  If you’re looking to whip something up for your kiddo’s, this design is easy, made using all single crochet stitches, and back stitching to create the arrows.  Finish it off by adding a single crocheted tab that snaps into any 3-ring binder and complete with a zipper.  Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton makes it look great in any binder, and fits a massive amount of supplies, or special treasures.  I love mine so much I might have to make one for my crochet hooks.

  1. i am makiing this to hold crochet hooks. I think this would look good for a bag for nursing homes as in hanging from a walker. I would like to send you a picture . how do i do that. The one I am doing of the pencil holder is yellow with blue borders. And the arrows are the same color scheme as in Happy Flower on Look what I made. I didnt think I would like the yellow. Boy mine is turning out nice

  2. I am returning your email. Since it failed to go through. I am posting here. Yes, I want to share. Yes I need help. It s a semi circular shawl.

  3. Hello. I am so pleased to se such a nice little pencil pouch. PLEASE may I just add a little advise here? When you have finished each side separetly HERE : this would be a nice time to put the Zips in Before you saw the two peases together. End this is the time if you wish to add the lining and than you can finish it sawing it together inside out. I DO WISH I HAD BEEN ABLE TO SHOW YOU IN PICTIRES but I do not have the means. (I am 83y.o. and done a little sawing in my time). God bless you for your hard work. WISHING YOUR DAD A VERY SPEEDY RECOVERY.
