To me, Back-To-School time always feels like a new beginning. Time to get organized and start fresh. Time to be a better student, worker or parent than you have been before. And it’s always time for a little style. Who knew what a pick-me-up a cute Long Pencil Pouch could be?

The colorful and wide-opening Zola Pen Case might be my favorite Sew Can She pencil pouch to date. These are so great for easily finding the desired item. Anything that saves time (even if it’s only a second) is valuable to me. Not to mention they turned out gorgeous.

Sew an easy drawstring bag that’s long and skinny! It is the perfect size for spectacles, a tooth brush and toothpaste, pencils, or even make up brushes. The Handy Dandy Pouch was a guest post from Sedef Imer

Whoever thought of putting grommets on a pencil pouch so it could live in your binder was a genius! Here’s my functional and colorful take: The 3 Ring Pencil Pouch.

Pencil Pouch Sewing Patterns with Vinyl

Instead of grommets this 3 Ring Pencil Pouch uses loops made from fabric to secure it inside your binder. No special tools or notions required.

If you need a see-through pouch, here’s a versatile option. The Ribbon and Vinyl Zipper Pouch is easily customized by making a bigger ribbon loop to fit your wrist, or adding a clip or key ring.

Another free pattern that is great for vinyl is what I call the Clippie Zippies. Clip them on your bag so your necessities don’t fall down to the bottom. Save some time by not having to hunt for them!


The Twice as Nice Zippered Organizer is amazing for pens, pencils, crayons, markers, and any other writing utensil you can imagine! You can see everything all the time…I love it!


This clear vinyl pouch is just right for pens and pencils and so much more!
