The pattern will be for beginners. The pencil case consists of three layers: external, lining, internal fabric. Cut out the rectangle. They put a synthetic winterizer between the material, stitched it from three sides. Turned on the face, sewn a zipper. For a preschooler, you need the simplest pencil case in the form of a wallet for all pencils.
Often, teachers at the beginning of the year return to their parents pencil cases with Velcro, with bright applications or in an unusual way, voluminous suitcases, tubes for one reason - children are distracted from the educational material.
It does not matter whether he admired the bright pencil case, played with its mounts, was in a hurry to complete the task of the teacher and dropped it on the floor, or tries to often take out and put away pencils, pulling the Velcro. The result will be one -undigested material.
Therefore, until the child is used to controlling his desires, subordinating his behavior to the rules, just sew a simple pencil case. You can even tie such a wallet with a large button (if the preschooler has developed fine motor skills).

From the second grade, the child understands how to behave at school during the lessons and recess. And just in moments of rest, schoolchildren boast of their new things. For this period, pencil cases-fish, crocodiles, dinosaurs, etc. are suitable. Consider how to sew a pencil case-shark:
- draw a pattern of fish, fins;
- transfer to the outer, lining fabric in duplicate;
- sew shark fins to the outer material (can be stuffed with padding polyester);
- sew all layers of the pencil case;
- sew zipper-teeth in front;
- sew button-eyes on top.
Thus, you can sew any pencil case with your own hands. The pattern of tigers, dinosaurs, bears, monsters can be the simplest. For example, sew a green wallet with ears, eyes, and sew a zipper mouth not from the side, but on the front of the pencil case. The result was a dinosaur muzzle.
And if you own a crochet, then you can knit any pattern from yarn. In this case, it is better to take thick threads. First, they keep their shape well. Secondly,less time will be spent on the knitting process.
Not every child has a sewn "pencil case" with their own hands. Its pattern is nevertheless simple, and the product itself is a single long canvas, a long pocket and an elastic band. Lay out the fabric in length, put the pencils on it, marking the distance between them. Cut off the fabric, taking into account the allowances. You need to make a part in duplicate.
Take the same length of material for the inner deep pocket where you insert the pencils. Therefore, it is better to take a dense fabric. Sew a pocket with a long part of the pencil case. Next, mark the dimensions of the pencil pockets with soap. Sew the marked lines.
Insert pencils into pockets, see if they fall out, if the tip breaks. If fixation is needed, then sew an elastic band on top (also sewing it through 3-4 pencils). Now sew the resulting inner case with the front fabric. Sew a tail with a rivet to one edge, fold the pencil case with pencils into a case, mark the place of the second button. The product is ready.
As you can see, it's easy to sew a pencil case with your own hands. Patterns can be found of any complexity. It is better for beginner craftswomen to start with a simple rectangular pencil case, but focus on its appearance. For example, sew a pencil case-piano.
