It's a wrap....

.....for my pencils and markers.



Inside is a zippered pocket for the eraser, compass ruler, leads, etc. Initially the pens were held in with an elastic strap, but when the pens were inserted the elastic pulled in, gathering the edges. A pocket with individual channels worked better. The flap was added to keep the pens from sliding out.




Adding a ribbon tie on the finished side----

.....allows me to close the wrap towards either end showing another design.
This was on my summer to do bucket list. I loved designing and making this.
