Summer is over, it is a whole new round of “back-to-school” and “back-to-work” again!!!! I hope you have enjoyed your sun shiny days through out the pass few months; have refreshed and recharged yourself mentally and physically for another round of loooong journey. I don’t have summer vacation since it is all year round of hot sunny days which I usually hide myself from it… Anyway, I just had a great weekend getaway with friends from far, we ate, we adventured, we explored, we chat, and we definitely enjoyed every moment together! Now, I am ready for more challenges…. renovate my new home and make whole lot of crafts to stuff it up.. woohooo!!!

To welcome you back to the craft room of Craft Passion, here is the zipper pencil case pattern and tutorial which I did before my recent weekend getaway. Honestly, this is not suitable for beginner sewer because of the piping and the way I lined it, but intermediate or advance sewer should have no problem in getting it done.

As you can see from the photos, this zipper pencil case has a zipper that opens all the way down from top to the sides. This enable a widely open view that make getting things from the pencil case straightforward. Also, there are internal gussets at the sides to prevent contents from falling out.

This pencil case would make perfect storage for many purpose, pencil case, cosmetic pouch, stationery, accessories, craft tools etc… you name it!!!

  1. Hi Joanne,

    So how long is the exact length for the zipper?
    Thank you :)

  2. Beautiful. Perfect. Thank you.
    Greetings from Poland :)

  3. I am lost at step 20 when the lining is placed….

  4. hello!

    do you have any tutorial videos? it may be easier for me :(

  5. I love this pencil case. I’m attempting to make one for my children and their friends each. There are some parts that i’m having problems with.

    Once I get one completed and start another, can I do a video tutorial for people? I would have loved a video tutorial for this and haven’t been able to find one.

    Thank you

  6. Thanks for the tutorial, it’s very close to what I’m after. Just need to figure out how to add another zippered pocket :) Could you please tell me what measurements the finished pencil case has? It looks way smaller than 15″ in the pics..!

    Best regards

  8. Hey craft passion,

    I’d like to make this adorable pencilcase but there is one thing i’d like to know before i start.
    What kind of interfacing did you use? What brand and number?

    • I bought the interfacing from a craft shop in loose pack, no info on the brand and number were given. Sorry. You can use medium cotton interfacing that is meant for bag making.

  9. I love the design and zipper. Can you tell me where you buy your zippers?

  10. Thank you very much for your tutorial!
    My English is unperfect, but till the 18th step I understand it clearly.
    I would like to sew a bag similar to but with a wall inside the bag like this one:

    Unfortunately I am a beginner. :(
    Do you have any idea how I can sew a bag like this? Sizes should be 27 L x 24.5 H x 14.5 W cm and volume/capacity 10 Liter.
    I would like to put my tablet and books in the bag to have a bit more order. My old bag has a lot of room, but if I put books in it, the bag rolls over and I can’t find anything in my bag with too much unordered space.

    I hope you can help me.

    Wish you a nice weekend!

    • Liliana, I am afraid that I cannot handle your request, it is big project to come out with a decent bag/purse design. Sorry, I have a lot in my list to catch up with.

  11. Thanks .you are the best.I saw it .and my girl loves it very very….

  12. HI .NICE

  13. Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening.
    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to
    put this information together. I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and
    leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  14. Hi- Thanks for the wonderful tutorial. I have now made 4 of these- adding additional pockets in most and adding some straps to the outside to make a perfect handlebar bag for bicycles! I don’t think I have the gusset part correct but my bag works fine.

  15. Thank you so much for the wonderful pattern and tutorial! My bag turned out wonderful, it was a tough one for me.

  16. Hi. This is really great tut, thank you very much. I used it to sth totally different – netbook case, with different proportions but crtainly same pattern. It’s universal and nicely explainde. Have a nice sewing!

  17. Beautiful bag. If you could help me, how would you go about shortening the bag to 6″ instead of the original 8 1/2″? TIA.
